Healthcare Innovation Challenge
Time is TBD
Science Tower,
Marconistraat 16, 3029 AK Rotterdam, Netherlands

Young Medical Delta organizes the Healthcare Innovation Challenge: a weekend-long event in which the fields of technology, design, entrepreneurship, health- and patient care are combined. The challenge is to find innovative technical solutions for sustainable healthcare, so we can keep providing healthcare for everyone that needs it. From programming to creating physical prototypes to proposing clinical procedures. Anything innovating can be used to find solutions to the big challenges that healthcare is currently facing. 

The Healthcare Innovation Challenge is for everyone who is interested in healthcare, informatics, ethics, design or any other aspect of solving healthcare problems. You can choose a case which you want to solve. At the end of the weekend the jury will give some prices away.

Unfortunately, we decided that the event will be postponed to 2021 due to the coronavirus.
