The first ever Norwich Health Hackathon

Norwich’s first ever health hackathon will take place on Saturday 12 March 2016 at the Norwich Research Park. The 12-hour collaborative event will see the region’s leading health and technology professionals come together to generate innovative solutions to some of the most pressing problems faced by the sector.

Running from 8am to 8pm, the day will start with local health practitioners presenting some of their key challenges, before forming multi-disciplinary teams to brainstorm and develop solutions. Later in the day teams will present their solutions, hoping to catch the eye of the judging panel – and potential customers or investors!

The event, officially known as Hacking Health, is being organised by postgraduate entrepreneurship students at the University of East Anglia, as part of an Entrepreneurship in Global Health and Social Care module.

Members of the local health, digital and technology communities can register for free at http://www.hackinghealth.org.uk. Potential speakers and sponsors are invited to contact the organisers for more information.
