10 Billion Euro from the EU Up for Grabs for Health Tech Startups... Want Some?
With key figures who hold the purse strings to over €10 billion euro of health funding from the EU Horizon 2020 programme at our partner event, the World Research and Innovation Congress for Health in Brussels - our event.. Health Hackfest 2014 (http://the-hackfest.com/events/health-hackfest-brussels-2014.html) is an amazing opportunity for both sponsors and participants alike to gain knowledge and build networks with organisations and people who have been slated to deliver massive investment into health innovation in Europe over the next six years as part of the largest ever government fund for innovation the world has ever seen at €80 billion euro.
Funding is not restricted to European companies, and consortia with participants from around the world are welcome to tap into the monies being made available.
Organisations attending WRIC Health bridge both academia and commercial and with the core tenet of Horizon 2020 focussing on SME participation, this is a perfect opportunity to build new bridges and networks for all involved.
The bulk of the funding being made available from the EU at WRIC Health is slated for non-drug research, but rather - for software and hardware solutions - as technology plays a pivotal role in the new Horizon 2020 framework.
Health Hackfest 2014 has been launched as a platform designed with a pure objective to deliver hacked solutions and inventions, empowering those with brilliant ideas to take on a host of challenges and drive innovation in health.
The "Health Hackfest" hackathon, held in Brussels and run over two days (June 4-5, 2014) was created for software developers, hardware hackers, designers, researchers, entrepreneurs, business developers and even healthcare professionals wanting to be a part of having a positive impact by helping to create future solutions for Healthcare.
Come join us!
The "Health Hackfest" hackathon, held in Brussels and run over two days (June 4-5, 2014) was created for software developers, hardware hackers, designers, researchers, entrepreneurs, business developers and even healthcare professionals wanting to be a part of having a positive impact by helping to create future solutions for Healthcare.

By tapping into scores of API's and SDK's made available by health technology companies currently seeking to build developer communities and well over a hundred publically available APIs, developers can work together participants with other skills (design, user experience, hardware, user interface, and healthcare) to cultivate new ways of tackling old problems and brainstorming over two days to build new friendships, create new networks and most importantly, design new products and services.

Web and mobile-based devices are becoming increasingly important in diagnosis and treatment where a doctor is not immediately available; to demonstrate the effectiveness of these technologies, the Hackathon will bring together a wide array of people with multiple talent to address current healthcare challenges and present the results back to those attending the event.
This novel initiative is supported by W3C (The World Wide Web Consortium) who are currently working on semantic web standards, data storage and sharing.
