IT4Anxiety’s 3nd online hackathon was launched on the 19th of January in Lille, France. This French hackathon is co-organised by G.A.C. Group and CCOMS. Hackathon attendants include various stakeholders of the mental health field such as patients, professionals, start-ups, etc.
Day 1 began with a welcome speech provided by Déborah SEBBANE, Director of the CCOMS followed by a short presentation of the IT4Anxiey project given by the project’s coordinator, Vinciane DE MOFFARTS. After Bernabé CHUMPITAZI’s explanations on the organisation and rules of this hackathon, the 7 great start-ups participating at the hackathon presented their projects: PsySelect.com, Spectre, MyBrainTech, Moha, Aroma Therapeutics, SymbioCenter and Mamabe.
Following those presentations, the participants were split into 7 groups and began working with the start-ups on the different projects, discussing and sharing their ideas using Mural, an online collaboration tool.
