EdinburghApps Annual event

The annual EdinburghApps event returns on the 6th of February 2016. The theme this year is Health and Wellbeing, and we’re looking for anyone who has an idea, a product in development or just wants to take part !

EdinburghApps is an unique civic challenge event for the City of Edinburgh that offers participants the opportunity to help improve the lives of those living, working and visiting the city. It has a track record of delivering innovative digital solutions working with local or new businesses

This competition is open to all those in tech and design areas. Winners of the event are offered business support, along with the opportunity to work in partnership with the Council to develop their concepts further.

On Saturday 6th February participants and guests are invited to attend a Design Workshop at the School of Informatics Forum. This will be the first opportunity to hear the key challenges we are setting around our theme, Health and Wellbeing. The event is being run by Snook, who have a great track record in running design workshops.

Participants will then have 5 weeks to work on their ideas before being invited to attend the judging and awards event on Sunday 13th March.

We will also be running a drop-in clinic on 27th February where participants can update on progress, pitch to challenge owners and work with them to develop their proposal further.
