[The Hackathon]

The Hack(athon) for Active & Healthy Ageing [HAHA] is an elderly-centric, 48-hour rapid innovation event where multidisciplinary talents collaborate on the design and development of (ro)bot solutions that allow elderly to live a healthier, more active and independent life.


Theme focus: Active & Healthy Ageing
Tech focus: Robotics, Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence 


As this is a societal challenge that concerns everyone, we are welcoming participation from a broad perspective:


  • (UI/UX/game/graphic/fashion) designers,
  • (front/back/full-stack/mobile/game) developers
  • (robotics/IT) engineers, architects, (computer/data) scientists, AI experts,
  • healthcare professionals, caretakers,
  • researchers, students,
  • startups, (social) entrepreneurs,
  • or anyone else who believes their skill is valuable in tackling this societal challenge.


    The hackathon will include scenario-based elderly rooms equipped with sensors, devices, robots, A.I. services and where elderly are included to ensure that we end up with elderly-centric solutions.


The Playground

The Hacker playground includes a hacker space, simulated elderly rooms and 3D design/printing areas


 The “Hacker Playground” will consist of the following dedicated areas:
  • the Hacker Space where the participants design, code and develop,
  • the Testing Ground / Elderly Rooms in which the hackers can test their prototypes directly with the elderly included.
  • the 3D design & printing areas where the hackers can rapidly create physical prototypes  



When: Kick-off Friday 18 Nov 18:00 – Sunday 20 Nov 18:00
When: VRBase at the Marinebase in Amsterdam
