Battle of the Minds – Health & Technology hackathon

Are you a researcher or a student, and up for a challenge on our future healthcare system? 
On June 29th, Health minister Ernst Kuipers will challenge you to come up with a solution for a specific problem that threathens our healthcare. In this ‘Battle of the minds’ hackathon, teams of early career researchers will battle under high pressure against teams of researchers with a long track record for a solution.

The Battle of the Minds will be an inspiring day for all students, early career researchers and more experienced researchers interested in healthcare. All disciplines are needed to solve the challenge, posed by minister Ernst Kuipers, ranging from fundamental to applied sciences, from medical to technological knowledge and from robotics to policy.
You can apply for the hackathon as an individual, or you can apply as a team. We will organize all the individuals and teams into multidisciplinary groups that are ready for the challenge.

The winning team will receive the possibility to further shape their idea into a durable solution. Next to this research fund, the team that ends up second will receive a prize that is definitely worth the shot.
Check the programme and subscription link below. We hope to see you on June the 29th in Delft!
