Hacking Health Nijmegen 2016
vr, 20 mei 2016, 19:00 – zo, 22 mei 2016, 22:00 CEST
Three days in a creative pressure cooker for healthcare: Developers, designers, entrepreneurs, healthcare professionals and patients will travel to multiple cities in the Netherlands for Dutch Hacking Health during the weekend from Friday the 20th until Sunday the 22nd of May. The goal is to work collaboratively on innovative solutions for health and care. It’s the first time that such a ‘health hackathon’ is being organized in a nation-wide setting in multiple cities.
Dutch Hacking Health
Dutch Hacking Health is the initiative of four Dutch Academic Medical Centers: LUMC, Maastricht UMC+, UMC Groningen and Radboudumc. Teams will work together in Groningen, Leiden, Maastricht and Nijmegen on the future of health.
The Hacking Health concept exists since 2012 and originates from Canada. These events are being organized for healthcare all over the world to create solutions for the healthcare problems of today and tomorrow. Aside from the usual suspects at hackathons like developers, entrepreneurs and designers Hacking Health also invites healthcare professionals and patients to participate in a team.
From problem to solution
Each city will organize a similar program. Patients, caregivers and other participants get a stage during the weekend to pitch their ideas and problems.
At the end of the weekend the teams will present the result. A winner will be selected by a multi disciplinary and independent jury. The winners of Dutch Hacking Health will also have the possibility to get stagetime on one of the events during the Start Up Fest Europe week like Our Future Health or Campus Party.
Participate & more information
Entrancefee for the weekend is €50,- for participants, students get a 50% discount. Observers for the final demos on sunday will be able to join for € 15,- (free for students).
