Transforming Ageing – SoCaTel Hackathon
More than just a HACKATHON!
The SoCaTel project has engaged with a range of people who have a legitimate interest in older adults’ long term care services. Over a recent two week period, health care professionals, nurses, care assistants, older persons, researchers and policymakers have collaborated on the SoCaTel’s online platform in 4 countries, to rethink the access to and delivery of health and social care services in the home.
The ideas generated from this innovative collaboration have the potential to influence future development of older persons’ services and now need to be brought to life !
As the next step, hackathons are being organised as a contest between multi-skilled teams, the winner of which will have conceptualised and developed the best prototype of the ideas put forward.
The challenge is to transform the ideas for service improvements into real, efficient and viable applications!
