Life Science Hackathon 2019
Life Science Hackathon 2019 is the greatest opportunity, you will have to work together with five companies from Northern Jutland to solve their biggest challenges within welfare and health tech.
Participation in the event is completely free and you can join with either friends or alone, as we strive to create diverse teams.

Time schedule for the event can be found under event posts along with description of the awesome challenges from the five companies.
Life Science Hackathon was made possible in collaboration with Aalborg University (AAU Innovation), Life Science Innovation North Denmark, IDA Nord, and Synapse - Life Science Connect. Not to forget, our wonderful case companies (read more in the challenge description)!
Our definition of 'hackathon':
An event, typically lasting several days, in which a large number of people meet to engage in collaborative problem solving.
Life Science Hackathon vision:
Besides winning the hackathon, along with a prize sponsored by IDA Nord, we envision that the best ideas and solutions are carried on by the teams in collaboration with the case company. We will work hard after the hackathon to ensure this happens.
