QCIF sponsors HealthHack Brisbane

QCIF is proud to once again sponsor this year's HealthHack Brisbane, which will take place over the weekend of 20–22 September at ThoughtWorks in the CBD.

The data hackathon event will bring researchers, students and healthcare professionals together with software developers, educators, engineers, designers and other scientists to create innovative solutions to important healthcare and medical research problems.

Participation is free, whether you bring a research problem to the table as a researcher or donate your skills to the hack as a coder, software developer, user experience (UX) designer, data analyst or visualiser.

HealthHack is keen to hear from researchers and anyone who enjoys developing solutions as part of a team — register now via the HealthHack website.
 
QCIF eResearch Analyst Dr Nick Hamilton will once again be a ‘Problem Wrangler’ for HealthHack, i.e. in charge of coordinating the problems to be solved.

“HealthHack has now been running every year since 2015, and many projects that have been seeded at HealthHack have gone on to either win an award, get substantial further investment or have formed the basis of grant applications,” said Dr Nick.
 
“HealthHack is a great way of encouraging innovation, creating solutions and, with a wide range of participants, it helps create connections between the university research, health and IT sectors.
