Hi All

Some of you may be interested in participating in the Hack 4 Health
http://hack4health.co.uk/ co-organised by OKFN - more details below!
At previous hackdays open science working group members have worked on Open
Research Reports, collating healthcare and biomedical publications and data
for different audiences, including patient groups. If anyone would like to
continue working on this or has different ideas and would like to form a
team, get in touch with the list!


Hack4Health is a weekend long hackathon for entrepreneurs and developers to
work with some of the latest health datasets and develop innovative new
products taking place from Friday 2nd November through to Sunday 4th
November 2012 at Google Campus.

Attendees will be provided with space, food and fellow health enthusiasts
and will spend the whole weekend working on any project you choose (with a
health focus of course!), mingling with existing digital health startups,
leading industry representatives and mentors throughout.

The weekend closes with the opportunity for teams to pitch their project to
a panel of experts, with fabulous prizes being awarded to the best teams
and the overall winner presenting their project at the launch of the Open
Data Institute to Tim Berners-Lee.

Hack4Health aims to highlight some of the newest digital innovations
happening in health while also highlighting the possibilities of open data.
The weekend is being jointly organised by Coadec, Healthbox, Open Data
Institute, NHS, Cabinet Office and the Open Knowledge Foundation.

Spaces will fill up quickly, so subscribe to the mailing list using the
