After hosting two editions of the Health Game Jam one at Lift16, and the other oneat the Lift:Lab17, in collaboration with the Fondation Genevoise de Lutte contre la Mucoviscidose and the Swiss Game Center, we have joined forces with the Open Geneva Festival Not only are we a proud, founding member of the this festival, but they will be co-hosting the next edition of the Health Game Jam with us!
Lift is also a proud founding member of the Breathing Games association that was created to anchor the Health Game Jam project in the long run in Geneva. Breathing Games, a signatory of the UN Global Compact and a member of the Open Source Initiative, promotes respiratory health and autonomy by encouraging the appropriation of care by each citizen. We create open access commons – collectively managed resources that can be used and enriched by everyone – by spurring collaboration between all interested stakeholders to build on collective intelligence.
This year, the event took place from April 12 to 15, 2018 in 2 different locations in parallel: at the Battelle Campus of the University of Geneva and at the Innovation Center of the HUG (Hôpitaux Universitaires de Genève). 20 participants joined our Health Game Jam and they had the opportunity to exchange and work with a group of doctors and physiotherapists who joined them at various moments of the hackathon.
On Sunday, at the Open Geneva’s Hackshow, all Health Game Jam participants presented their achievements on the main stage.
