    Application process

    The contest is open to teams led by legal entities (Small and medium-sized enterprises’s or start-ups) as well as individual entrepreneurs established in a European or H2020 associated country. This is a requirement to participate.
    Teams composition is open but there must be a team leader (e.g. an SME, entrepreneur). Teams must be composed of 3-5 individuals and be multidisciplinary (including individuals with, at least, business and technical profiles relevant to healthcare, and if possible, a link to users relevant to the challenge they are addressing). Students, researchers and others that want to participate are welcome to join the teams, but only legal entities can be team-leaders. We recommend that compounded teams have an internal agreement.
    Each team can only address one of the proposed challenges and should not aim at bringing already developed solutions to the Hackathon. The aim is to create disruption and come up with novel solutions.
    Registration deadline is the 18th of January 2019.
