PLACE-EE Hackathon

Date Location Organiser
25 Jan 2020 Ulster University, Coleraine, Northern Ireland Public Health Agency

The Northern Ireland Public Health Agency will be hosting a PLACE-EE hackathon in January 2020.

Students, professors, and industry programmers will gather in Ulster University for one 24-hour session to collaborate on the PLACE-EE project. Attendees will work rapidly in teams towards a set target and to generate awareness and interest within the various sectors (private, public, and academia - both inside and outside of Northern Ireland) of the needs of older people who live in a rural setting. The hackathon will also explore how digital solutions and services can be used to address issues related to social isolation.
