Fancy spending three days working on Strava and iMCD Household Survey/Travel Diary data from UBDC with fellow data enthusiasts?

Product Forge is back with a public health hackathon from Thursday 25th to Sunday 28th January 2018 at the Biscuit Factory in Edinburgh.

In collaboration with the NHS Information Services Division, the Innovative Healthcare Delivery Programme, Canon Medical Systems Europe and Scottish Health Innovations Limited, the Public Health Product Forge will unite the wider technology community, entrepreneurs and medical professionals to create digital innovations that tackle population health issues to ultimately improve the health of people and their communities. The event will cover a variety of themes including childhood obesity, addiction, and mental illness.

If you work in public health, are a developer, designer, or are interested in the subject, then this hackathon is for you!

Whether you already have an idea that you would like to prototype or you would just like to make new connections, we invite you to come along and meet people with a shared goal of finding digital remedies for challenges surrounding public health.

Use this opportunity to develop your career, gain new skills, network with professionals, meet potential employers or even kick-start your own company.
