With the spread of the novel coronavirus, governments, policymakers, and researchers around the world are seeking ways to protect vulnerable populations, prevent the further spread of infections, and ultimately flatten the curve.
From April 10-13, Hacking Health Berlin, together with Data Natives, invites you to help #HacktheCurve in our next online Hackathon. We’re looking for data scientists, developers, designers, healthcare professionals, infectious disease specialists, medical students, policy experts, and researchers who want to take the fight against COVID-19 to the next level.
Leading clinicians and researchers at Charité University Hospital (Berlin, Germany), the Berlin Institute of Health, and the University of Bern, (Switzerland) shared some of the biggest challenges they've encountered in the COVID-19 pandemic so far—and we're turning to you to come up with innovative solutions. Over the course of four days, you and your team will tackle a challenge in one of the following areas:
Challenge 1: Protecting high-risk populations
Challenge 2: Protecting healthcare workers
Challenge 3: Privacy-first contact tracing & digital epidemiology
Challenge 4: Improving intensive care
Challenge 5: Protecting mental health
Challenge 6: Your idea!
DATE: April 10th 17.00 CEST–April 13th 15.00 CEST
In the spirit of social distancing, this Hackathon will be entirely online. We will provide you with detailed information soon on the Slack channel as well as other tools we will use.
This event is organized by Hacking Health Berlin and Data Natives in partnership with the Charité University Hospital, the Berlin Institute of Health (BIH) and Vision Health Pioneers.
