The Faculties Innovative Students Hub (FISH) is a space for University of Liverpool students to come together, form interdisciplinary teams and create solutions to real-world problems.

This ‘FISH Meets Medicine Hackathon’ will allow physicists, medics, engineers, computer scientists and chemists to work together to solve problems, specifically in the field of medicine. 

The two day event includes inspiring talks from clinicians who will deliver problems that require solving, and who can work with student teams on their suggested projects. It is a great opportunity for students to develop their creative, technical and presentation skills, not forgetting that lunch, snacks and drinks will be provided!

Who should attend?

We are looking for both students and clinicians to get involved.

Clinicians are able to submit problems which should be solvable by a team of STEM undergraduate students. We know things can get busy, so the amount of involvement is up to you. You could just attend the event to outline your problem or, ideally, you would become an active member of the team and provide feedback on the solutions as they are being developed.

Students attending will be able to apply their knowledge to discuss, brainstorm and solve real world problems in teams. The teams who identify the solution will maintain intellectual property rights to that solution.
