The growing complexity of the healthcare system requires innovative and novel solutions. That’s why coding has risen so much in importance. This year’s Xpomet will be complemented by a HealthHackathon.com, presented by The Impact Farm, which imagines issues facing the system in the year 2025 and how they can be solved through effective digitalisation.
Many amazing things such as apps and even the concepts behind entire companies have been produced during Hackathons — their short time frames and competitive nature forcing people to come up with some truly exciting technological solutions. We hope this year is no exception, with the healthcare of the future dreamed up in only the space of a few days. With the healthcare sector mostly taken up by routine events and procedures, a Hackathon actively disrupts the norm by focusing solely on new and intelligent solutions to our most pressing issues.
The application period runs from May 1 to September 1. In the month before the festival, the teams will be given their challenges from which they can prepare for the Hackathon. The three day session will run alongside the festival, with the winners given out on October 12th.
The four topics covered in the Health Hackathon include Medical Technology, Care, Hospital Management and Health Insurance. If you want to apply, prepare a brief description of your thoughts regarding “Digital Medicine – Challenges and Solutions in 2025” with reference to one of those key topics. You can apply as part of a team, an individual, or as a mentor. There are a variety of cash prizes to be won up to a total of €15,000. And if you don’t win, there’s always the afterparty on October 12 for you to drown your sorrows slash gather new contacts from the world of medicine and technology.

Size doesn’t always matter. This is especially true for the small nation of Israel. The country is leading when it comes to technological innovations. is one of the world leaders when it comes to innovation in healthcare. Containing over 1,400 active life science companies, including numerous start-ups as well as multinationals, Israel has become a hub for all things related to life sciences and biotechnology. One of the main secret’s to Israel’s success has been institutions such as the Weizmann
When it comes to success, knowing is half the battle. This is why networks are so important — giving people access to resources they didn’t even know existed. That’s why we are so glad to join with STEMPeers. STEMPeers is a nonprofit organization founded with the aim of creating a peer-based mentoring and support platform for the worldwide STEM workforce. Started by a group of STEM graduates who suffered from poor academic training, STEMPeers was created to allow graduates realise
Antibiotic resistance has become a global health problem during the past three decades due to the emergence of dangerous, resistant strains with disturbing regularity, something that Sir Alexander Fleming, the discoverer of penicillin, warned us about during his Nobel Prize speech in 1945. In April this year a new groundbreaking report was put forward by the UN and international agencies that called for immediate action to avert a potentially disastrous antibiotic-resistance crisis. Based on predictive analytics, antibiotic-resistance could mean 10 million
We are all familiar with the saying “One man’s food is another man’s poison” yet it is only now with the advent of nutrigenomics and microbiome research that it is becoming apparent why. Poisons are not restricted to lectins in grains and legumes or to common food intolerances such as to gluten, casein (dairy), soy, corn and egg protein. Popular food items that are generally considered “heathy” may have deleterious effects in some people and recent nutrigenomics and microbiome research
“Our vision for Xpomet© Medicinale Festival is to connect all important key stake holders in next-generation healthcare and allow technologies to be translated within and from outside the healthcare field” Xpomet© founder, Ulrich PieperImmunotherapy has become a revolution in the area of cancer treatment. Compared to traditional methods, such as invasive surgeries, radiation and chemotherapy, immunotherapy is more specific and less toxic to patients. Immunotherapy treatments work by unleashing the immune system’s ability to fight cancer. These treatments can either activate
The healthcare industry is close to its tipping point. New innovations and technologies are being built every day but the overall framework is still slow, and even resistant, to change. With our Medicinale, XPOMET© wants to speed up this process considerably, bringing the best and brightest minds in the business into one place to learn and grow from each other. But how do we create a healthcare network that is both healthy and disruptive, ready to change while learning from
