All Campuses will now be closed for teaching and social activities

Following the clear imperative in the latest government advice to avoid all non-essential contact with others and avoid unnecessary travel, the decision has been made to suspend all teaching and social activities on campus and to close all libraries, sports facilities, theatres, catering facilities and cancel events.

We have further advice and guidance for our staff and students on our Covid-19 Corona Virus site

As part of the international PLACE-EE project, we're inviting hackers from all backgrounds and skill levels to a 12 hour hackathon.

Making Connections, Addressing Needs: making life better for older citizens in rural and isolated areas

Ulster University Business School - Master of Business Administration (MBA)

As part of the international PLACE-EE project, we're inviting hackers from all backgrounds and skill levels to a 12 hour hackathon.

The challenge is to develop proof of concepts (PoCs) for digital solutions/services that are designed to enable older citizens - especially for those in rural areas - to stay engaged and connected (to health and social needs and use of public services, for instance). The winning PoCs should be sustainable and have the potential to be expanded throughout Europe and indeed globally.

There's no limit on the technologies that can be utilised to create solutions / services / products: mobile, Internet of Things, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, gamification, the list goes on.

We'll provide mentors and subject matter experts to assist developers throughout the event. You'll be in a team of up to 5 people (if you don't have a team we can sort this out on the day).

By the end of the hackathon, the participants can pitch to a panel of judges, including key public and community stakeholders in front wider audience of their peers.
