Madrid December 1-3, 2017
The event was held in a coworking space (the Impact Hub Madrid) where every team had its own area to develop their projects. The event began on Friday with a series of talks from MIT experts, European researchers and clinician as well as institution representatives. On Saturday, there were talks from companies such as Philips followed by a team-building phase. The Spanish national ICU society and the MIT committee selected the projects, emphasizing topics that reflected the actual needs in the European landscape. The rest of Saturday and the whole of Sunday were reserved to the actual “hacking” phase. The event ended with final presentations from the various teams, judgement from the board and an awards ceremony.
