Crags Centre, Edinburgh

Europe's largest annual digital health & care hackathon

Join us for Europe's largest annual health hackathon where hundreds of health professionals, entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, designers and technologists will be spending 75 hours realising the future of health and social care.

Open to everyone from unlikely innovators to seasoned founders; whether you want to launch a startup, develop a product within an existing organisation, solve a problem that you have studied at university, or just develop new skills, this event will leave you equipped will the mindset, teammates and tools for disruption.

This year we're exploring integrated care and data driven innovation and our tracks will include sports & mental health, social care, emergency & unscheduled care, healthcare for the homeless and cybersecurity in healthcare. If you want to explore a topic outside the main themes we'll have a wildcard track for other challenges within health and social care.

Why participate at a Product Forge?

Product Forge is a career defining experience which welcomes professionals from all backgrounds, ages and levels of expertise.
We connect people who do not normally have the opportunity to work together, in an environment that fosters meaningful relationships over shallow connections.
Participants join cross disciplinary teams who are tasked with identifying and solving a real challenge within their chosen subject track. Teams are coached by industry experts through each stage of the event.
You'll be immersed in a real product development process, leaving you equipped with the mindset and skills to take your project forward after the event, or to develop new ideas.
Product Forge is a creative playground that encourages focused work whilst supporting positive physical and mental wellbeing. We provide healthy food, wellness activities, and around the clock access to breakout and rest areas.
You own everything you develop at the event and set your own metrics for success. Whether your goal is to develop your skills, solve a specific business or technical challenge, find a co-founder, or simply meet like minded people - we're here to help.
