🌐On Friday, 10 November 2023, almost 20 students from the Faculty of Mechatronics studying smart technologies gathered at the TUL FabLab to participate in the 5G/Digital Health Hackathon as part of the EIT HEI Skills2Scale project.
The students are working on technical solutions to three 5G Health challenges – they are developing new solutions that could help paramedics in the future (the excursion to the dispatch centre in Liberec was inspiring, thank you!), as well as caregivers of Alzheimer’s patients or hospitals in tracking the movement of mobile devices.
During the Hackathon, students had the opportunity to discuss their solutions with a 5G expert from the national operator T-Mobile. The business and technical aspects of the projects were supported by people trained within the Skills2Scale project – Webinar on Beyond 5G Technology, Innovation and Entrepreneurship project. Many thanks to Pavel Hübner from IOT startup Hardwario and Lukas Abazid from T-Mobile!
But watch out❗ – this 8-hour Hackathon was just the continuation of the 5GIIL project at TUL – the students are working on their projects throughout the semester and will present their final pitch deck on 23 November.
