Love of the Game ‘Hakathon’

10th March 2021

Love of the Game and Hacking Health UK are proudly hosting a 2.5 day “Hakathon” on the 26th-28th March. Teams will get together to focus on the Prevention, Diagnosis, Treatment of head injuries and concussion within sports.

“As a former sportsperson competing at the highest level on the international stage, I’ve seen the impact of head injuries on those around me – and also felt it myself.”

– Simon Shaw MBE, Love of the Game Campaign President and Former International Rugby Player.

Experts in UX Design, Product Design, Engineering, Software Development, Hardware Development, Sport, Medicine or Research will get the chance to flex their skills, develop new ones and grow their network! Throughout the event teams will hear from Keynote speakers, take part in design thinking sessions, chat with mentors and pitch their ideas to judges.

It also wouldn’t be a Hackathon without any prizes…. In each category winning teams will receive:

6 months of post-event mentoring support (from industry experts), £1000 prize in each category and £500 for the runner up in each category.

The 6 categories are as follows: Best Prevention Solution, Best Diagnosis and/or Grading Solution
