EGHI/GT COVID-19 Virtual Hackathon

As COVID-19 creates unprecedented challenges that have never been seen before, the Emory University and Georgia Tech communities have the opportunity to help. The Emory Global Health Institute, the Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech & EmoryCREATE X, and the Emory University School of Medicine are partnering to host a virtual hackathon with students from both universities to pursue solutions to challenging problems sparked by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

This hackathon will include teams comprised of Georgia Tech and Emory students who will  develop solutions for multiple COVID-19-related problems. Three winning teams will each receive a $10,000 cash prize, the opportunity to take their solution to market through Georgia Tech’s CREATE-X Startup Launch accelerator, and other potential investment opportunities.
