DUTCH HACKING HEALTH – Leiden
Hacking Health Leiden, a #patientsincluded event where technology, design, entrepreneurship, healthcare and patients are brought together during a weekend. It will be held in the weekend of 20 – 22nd of May. Hacking Health aims to transform healthcare by connecting teams, which usually rarely collaborate, who search for human-centric solutions to front-line healthcare problems.
During the weekend, participants will get the opportunity to pitch their ideas and problems on stage. After that they will form teams consisting of healthcare professionals, patients, programmers, designers and entrepreneurs to try find a solution in two and a half day. At the end of the weekend the teams will give a presentation of the results and the winners will be selected by a multidisciplinary expert panel.
Besides support for further development of their idea, the winners will get the opportunity to pitch their idea on several stages of Start Up Fest Europe.
