You can now register for the Mental Health and Learning Disability Hackathon, which is taking place at the University this weekend.
During the hackathon, teams will work together to solve a variety of mental health and disability challenges. If you take part in the event, you’ll work within one of these teams to create product prototypes that can then be used by the NHS and local healthcare charities. A number of prizes are available for the winning prototype ideas.
The challenges you’ll be working on will be submitted by the hackathon participants. If you have a challenge you would like the hackathon to try and solve, you can submit the problem to Hacking Health Liverpool. Alternatively, you can submit your challenge to the Liverpool Spark board.
Mentors with backgrounds in healthcare tech, gaming, design thinking and machine learning will be on hand to help.
The Hackathon is the UK’s first Hacking Health event and is taking place over three days between Friday, 10 March and Sunday, 12 March. You can register for your free hackathon tickets here. For more information, please visit the Hacking Health Liverpool website.
