KfW hackathon generates innovative urban health solutions


At this year’s World Health Summit, KfW Entwicklungsbank organised a two-day hackathon at which teams of young experts from countries around the world searched for innovative solutions to urban health challenges. At the award ceremony KfW General Manager Joachim Nagel praised the three winning teams, saying that ‘the international community needs innovations like these to tackle the enormous challenges it faces’. The term ‘hackathon’ is a combination of the words ‘hack’ and ‘marathon.’ It describes a collaborative event at which multidisciplinary teams come together for several days to develop innovative solutions to help address contemporary problems.
