Event description

Description

The Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO), in partnership with the Global Water Institute, are pleased to announce the inaugural Clean Water Hackathon will take place at the Michael Crouch Innovation Centre (UNSW) from 11-13 July, 2018.

The Hackathon arises from ANSTO’s year-long collaboration with the Sri Lankan government to investigate Chronic Kidney Disease of Unknown Cause (CKDu), a serious public health issue affecting agricultural communities in the country’s north-east.

Undergraduate and postgraduate students are invited to participate in the Hackathon. We value diversity of thought in reaching an innovative solution to the problem and invite students from STEMM, business, design, international relations, and other related areas, to join.

Over the three days of the Hack, participants will:

  • Join cross-institutional, multidisciplinary teams,
  • Hear from leading researchers on existing initiatives to deliver clean water to affected communities, and remaining barriers,
  • Receive mentoring in the development of their proposal,
  • Pitch their proposal and have the opportunity to share in a $5,000 cash prize. The winning team will also be invited to work with ANSTO experts to further develop their concept.
  • Attend a cocktail reception on 13 July where the winner will be announced
