In collaboration with Wambi, Sigma is proud to present an opportunity to participate in a hackathon! This three-hour session is offered free to the first 150 attendees who sign up. Hackathon participants will form groups upon arrival, be given information regarding the topic, collaborate with colleagues to form viable solutions, and wrap up the event with a 3-5-minute pitch to peers and a panel of judges. Judges will determine 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners. Hackathon participants will also vote on a People’s Choice Award. The winning group will receive two hours with key innovators at Wambi to further develop their idea.
The purpose of this activity is to bring nurse leaders and scholars together from throughout the world with complementary skills and knowledge to develop innovative solutions. Subsequently, this work may provide the momentum needed to launch a new collaboration or form the basis for a joint funding proposal and/or a research project.
Neither Wambi or Sigma will claim intellectual property rights and are not responsible for idea stealing between groups or group members. Laptops are highly recommended but not required. Winners will be announced at the event and presented with certificates.
