about

5G Transatlantic Lab is a project created by Garage Stories in collaboration with Mobile World Capital Barcelona to explore the potential of 5G and XR technologies applied to paediatric healthcare. We aim at fostering new connections between creatives and technologists based in Barcelona and Boston to develop innovative projects that can reduce the negative impact of long term paediatric patients (and families) experience at the hospital. In short:

 

Make children's stay at the hospital as enjoyable

and less traumatic as possible

The lab, lead by the innovation unit of Hospital Sant Joan de Déu (Barcelona) and Boston Children's Hospital (Boston) with the support of Cisco, GSMA and MedVR, and 5G Barcelona will take place March 26-28th in a hybrid format. The two winning projects will be incubated and presented during the MWC 2021 in Barcelona (June28th - July 1st).

SPEAKERS

March 15 to March 25, leading up the the event, will take place virtual live sessions with experts all over the world in healthcare, education, storytelling, design, wellbeing, etc; so as to inspire and prepare participants for the Hackathon.

how it works
participants

The lab is open to anyone based in Barcelona or Boston with an interest in improving children's experience at the hospital: creatives, storytellers, educators, technologists, psychologists, etc!

We'll accept up to 150 participants per city (applications are in teams up to 3 people per city) and we'll create 50 teams of 6 people (3 from Barcelona - 3 from Boston).

During the weekend, both cities will provide facilities for people based in the same city to work together, and remotely with the part of their based in the other city.

Participants will have access to local mentors who will be able to assist them on-site during the event plus international mentors that will assist them remotely via Slack.

We want to "Hack" the hospital with a humanistic approach: we are interested in new ideas that can improve long-term paediatric patients experience at the hospital so as to protect their emotional and personal development.

We want to explore the potential of emerging technologies (XR/AI/5G) to do so, but we are not so interested in your capacity to code an impressive app in 72 hours, but your capacity to empathise with those patients and come up with innovative and feasible ideas with a clear value proposition to be developed and implemented in collaboration with both hospitals after the event.
