EGHI/GT COVID-19 Hackathon, 5/8-5/16
The Emory Global Health Institute is hosting a virtual hackathon focused on developing solutions for specific COVID-19 problems in May. The virtual hackathon is a partnership with the Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech & Emory, Georgia Tech’s CREATE X Startup Launch accelerator program, and the Emory University School of Medicine.
The virtual hackathon will take place May 8-16. Teams comprised of Emory University and Georgia Tech students will attempt to hack problems around COVID-19 screening, prevention, treatment, monitoring, and recovery efforts. The winning teams will each receive $10,000, the opportunity to take their solution to market through Georgia Tech’s CREATE-X, and other potential investment opportunities. All Emory students, including 2020 graduates, are eligible to participate.
