Get involved with innovation in medical technologies and shape the health service of the future, gain experience of multi-disciplinary team working and connect with senior professionals from health and tech across the Leeds City region.
Students are invited to enter a hackathon focussing on innovation in health services.
It is a fantastic opportunity to work in multi-disciplinary teams to come up with novel solutions and prototypes – these might be tech based, service models or business plans – and present your ideas to a panel of industry and institutional leaders who will select the winning idea to receive a £1000 prize!
Ideas presented could be anything from an app that links people to others in their community, or a surgical innovation to support front line staff. As long as it is multidisciplinary and can be presented back in a ten minute slot then its up to teams to bring us their most innovative ideas!
You can join as a team or as an individual, individuals will then be placed into teams, and mentors will be available throughout the event to support and advise participants.
Teams will have 24/7 access to the Leslie Silver library over the weekend and refreshments, including pizza in true hackathon style!
This will be a high profile event, providing excellent experience and a great coup on your CV, not to mention the opportunity to innovate within and improve health services in the Leeds city region!
