Can you think of a way to improve the health of Glasgow?  Do you think that the environment impacts on the health of the people living in the dear green place?  More and more data derived from monitoring all sorts of things is available – do you think that data could make a difference?  Can you imagine how?  If you are a health professional the third of Open Glasgow’s Hackathons.  If your idea is good enough you could get £20,000 to develop it.

The team asked me to write a piece to stir up thinking about data and health – you can read it here: OPEN Glasgow | A city on the mend.  And it looks like I’m going to be on the judging panel which should be fun.
