15 teams for 2 ½ days participated in the first Hackathon held at Charité, Berlin. The interdisciplinary teams that formed during the opening ceremony on Friday discussed medical problems, coded, analyzed large amounts of data, designed and created hardware tools. As a result, solutions against blood loss, diabetes, depression, stress, anxiety, and many more were created and presented at the final ceremony.
We are overwhelmed by the outstanding quality of the solutions created within such a short period of time by teams that were formed quickly at the hackathon
The Jury identified all of the solutions as relevant and supportable in terms of the judgment criteria yet identified three as outstanding.
