Nimma Hacks:

News / 27-10-2021

Decide the future of the Nijmegen Health & Hightech sector with your innovative ideas.

The second edition of Nimma Hacks takes place on Saturday the 9th of October. Nimma Hacks is a 24-hour long hackathon. During this hackathon, teams with different backgrounds and education levels get to grips with a problem from the local Health & Hightech sector.

 

Nijmegen is known for being an Old City with a Young Vibe, but did you know that it also is the Health & Hightech hotspot of the Netherlands? Keeping healthcare affordable and accessible, providing sufficient and affordable food for everyone: these are just two major challenges of the future, which companies and research institutions in Nijmegen are working on together. Day in, day out with thousands of people from all over the world. We want to contribute to this with this hackathon!

 

Nimma Hacks starts on Saturday at 10:00AM and it stops at 10:00AM the following morning. An online communication platform is used for this edition. On this platform, teams will have access to their own meeting room and channels for the transfer of information and documentation. It is up to the teams if they want to sit together in a room or at a distance from each other.

 

During the hackathon, the teams are digitally assisted by various experts from the field. The organization will provide fun energizers during the day and night!

 

Everyone can participate in teams of 3,4 or 5 people. At the end of the hackathon, teams will deliver an implementation plan that is hands-on and could be implemented immediately.

 

A good plan deserves to be realized and that is why the partaking parties reserved at least 10.000 euros to actually realize the idea! An independent jury ultimately decides who will win. In addition to the implementation budget the teams can win a balloon flight over the Novio Tech Campus and a whole year of free entrepreneurship at Start-Up Nijmegen (worth 2940.- euros).

 

If the corona measures allow it, the award ceremony will take place live at a (to be determined) location in Nijmegen on Friday, October 15 2021.

 

Nimma Hacks is an initiative of the City of Nijmegen and is made possible by Ampleon, Byondis, CITC, Hogeschool van Arnhem en Nijmegen, Novio Tech Campus, NXP, RadboudUMC, Radboud University, The Economic Board, Tourism Veluwe Arnhem Nijmegen and Start Up Nijmegen.
