Cross-Institutional Hackathon Documentation

Knowledge exchange

In the bid to experiment with acceleration models the Cohort Two Challenge Led Accelerator programme incorporated a hackathon into the selection process. Applicants were invited to apply to participate in a 2.5 day hackathon, form teams and develop an innovative solution to the challenge Mental Health, Welbeing and Happiness. On the final day of the hackathon teams pitched their solution to a panel of experts who scored each solution against a set criteria, the top scoring teams were offered the opportunity to participate in the six month accelerator programme.

The application form, email invitation to the hackathon including attachments and the hackathon delivery plan have been made available to view.
