Inclusive innovations for a healthier, more caring European society
EIT Health Alumni; Patients; Carers; Healthcare Experts; Hackers; Developers; Designers; Data Scientist; Digital Marketers; and all Changemakers!
Join forces to further develop and improve some of the most promising digital solutions to build a healthier, resilient and caring European society and win the opportunity to accelerate your project with N3XTCODER. We support everyone who wants to explore health & social innovation and solidarity in Europe! By including patients in our hackathon teams we ensure that the ideas and projects are fit for real needs, and will lead to better collaboration and learning opportunities. We also aim to empower citizens to be more well informed, and create better trust in systems.
During the Hackathon you will further build concrete products and services into tangible solutions in small interdisciplinary teams. We focus on these problem statements:
1. How can we support resilient healthcare systems which integrate and build upon the contribution of empowered citizens & patients?
2. How do we empower well informed citizens?
3. A good outcome on the day would be concrete solutions to one or more of the problem statements as mentioned above. This includes but is not limited to:
This Hackathon is for you if:
Either way you become part of an interdisciplinary team bringing together innovators, citizens & patients that aims to tackle one of the above mentioned problems.
Don’t forget: The possibilities do not end after the Hackathon – we are making plans for an extended pilot phase through incubation with N3XTCODER, EIT Health, and other partners. The winning team of this hackathon receives a prize that includes hands on N3XTCODER support to bring your solution to reality. This Hackathon could be the first step towards a new venture that aims to build a more resilient future.
During the hackathon you get the opportunity to apply your skills to new and innovative solutions. You will be surrounded by experts, mentors and EIT Health partners. You will get a better understanding how technology innovation can lead to more resilient societies. Learn from citizens & patients, social entrepreneurs and EIT Health Alumni how they identify “hot spots” within the current system and how you can help to develop improvements for society. Broaden your network and learn from other social entrepreneurs how easy it can be to become a changemaker.

We at N3XTCODER strongly support the Global Goals and aim for all our projects and partners to contribute to one or more of the 17 Global Goals that have been launched by the United Nations in 2015. A 17-point plan to end poverty, halt climate change and fight injustice and inequality, the Global Goals are the biggest attempt in the history of the human race to make the world a better place. A plan that 193 governments have agreed, a plan that the world wants and needs. A plan backed by leading business and organisations. A to-do-list for the planet that will only be achieved if everyone plays their part. N3XTCODER aims to identify and work with the best technology solutions and digital products that have the great potential to tackle the most pressing problems that persist today.
