The EHFG Hackathon is open for all interested in health policies. If you are a health professional, an IT expert, a business specialist, a designer or other – any open-minded, creative thinker who enjoys working under pressure in teams with the goal of arriving at a joint solution, we are looking for you!
Once selected and participating in the Hackathon, the formed teams start working in their respective groups while receiving guidance and input from mentors. After 48 hours of intense collaboration, the individual groups finalise their projects and present them in front of the hackathon jury, which is comprised of experts with extensive experience. These experts score the submitted solutions according to the following criteria: innovativeness and feasibility of the idea, its impact on health, and financial sustainability. In the end, three finalist teams are chosen and invited to pitch their projects during the Closing Plenary of the EHFG. Afterwards, these three shortlisted projects are put to a vote via a digital audience survey.
