Alliance EWUU Preventive Health Hackathon

On the 2nd and 3rd of October, Wageningen University & Research offers a two-day extracurricular Preventive Health Hackathon for Bachelor and Master students of the Alliance EWUU (TU/e, WUR, UU and UMCU). This hackathon is organised in collaboration with Thuis Wageningen and touches upon the theme of ‘energy poverty’.

The Preventive Health Hacakathon focuses on one of the most important challenges in our society: reaching and helping people who experience financial stress, partly due to rising energy prices. More and more people in the Netherlands are struggling with high energy costs, making it difficult for them to afford good nutrition and exercise.

Master students can take part in a two-day hackathon on 2 and 3 October to find solutions for this. During the hackathon, students will explore in multidisciplinary teams how to make financial services and energy-saving measures more accessible. In the end, students have the chance to share their ideas to help Thuis Wageningen, Wageningen municipality and their partners reach struggling households. Join this challenge and find solutions!
