A NEW KIND OF AN OPEN INNOVATION EVENT THAT HELPS THE MOBILITY ECOSYSTEM SOLVE TOUGH TECHNICAL AND BUSINESS CHALLENGES TOGETHER
To effectively deal with coronavirus, lockdown, and the lasting consequences of both, a new level of creativity and collaboration is necessary for every company and organization involved in Mobility. What are the new infrastructure, technology, business model, and regulatory solutions? We don’t know – so bringing together the brightest people in the industry to work them out sounds like a good idea.
Hack Mobility is an Open Innovation event aimed at creating ingenious, unorthodox solutions for everyone involved in Mobility or impacted by mobility problems, from cities to transport companies to large employers. Its purpose is is to help you to come up with new ideas, explore new business models and new technologies, and immediately test these ideas with your fellow participants. You’ll also forge new collaborations to help you start implementing your ideas the day after the event.

IN-PERSON EVENTS FOR THE POST-COVID-19 ERA
Experience shows that online events do not provide the kind of human connection and collaborative creativity necessary for a successful innovation experience.
Hack Healthcare will take place in person with full range of precautions: number of participants within permitted limits, disposable masks and hand gels, overnight cleaning, etc.
In case tightened regulations make the events impossible on their scheduled dates, the events will be postponed by approximately 3 months.
