News - 23 May 2019 - Communication

At the Dutch Hacking Health, a healthcare hackathon where healthcare problems are solved within a weekend in a multidisciplinairy group, a team of mostly DfI and IPD students were awarded second place in the Innovation category for their VR design in cooperation with SyncVR.

Team member Natasa Rikalo about her experience: "It was an interesting event, because the company (SyncVR, red.) was really open to us and gave us a lot of information. The Sophia Medical Centre was interested in our idea even before we got to the finals! In the coming months we'll have another meeting with them."
