The third IT4Anxiety Hackathon took place on January 19th and 20th 2022 in Lille, France co-organised by G.A.C. Group and the CCOMS. This edition was held online due the current sanitary situation.
Hackathons are one of the major activities in the IT4Anxiety project. Two editions already took place in March 2021 in Amsterdam, Netherlands and in October 2021 in Bielefeld, Germany. Two more are yet to come: one in April 2022 in Belgium and the final one in June 2022 in the United Kingdom. The aim of these events is to bring together people from different backgrounds to co-create innovative solutions for a better mental health and less anxiety.
Over two days, patients, professionals and start-ups were split into thematic groups and worked together on the solutions and projects presented by the 7 following start-ups: PsySelect.com, Spectre, MyBrainTech, Moha, Aroma Therapeutics, SymbioCenter and Mamabe.
At the end of the event, the jury deliberated to select the winner who was awarded a support for the development and financing of their innovation provided by G.A.C. Group of a value of 7.000€ ! The winning start-up of this edition was Mamabe !
