Noesis supported the What The Health Hackathon and the creation of solutions to combat COVID-19


In order to strengthen its connection with the academic community, Noesis sponsored the initiative of students from the University of Coimbra that linked Technology to the world of Health.

Noesis decided to ally itself with the Hackathon What The Health organized by engineering students from the University of Coimbra and promoted by IEEE EMBS UC, which took place from the 9th of April until the 11th!

Noesis entered as the main partner in a unique Hackathon, which aimed to unite Health with the world of Technology and where participants were challenged to find technological solutions to respond to problems resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Hackathon kicked off with a presentation session, in which Ricardo Rocha, our Marketing & Communication Director, introduced Noesis to the students who agreed to participate in this Hackathon.

During the initiative, Noesis professionals, Mariana Junges and José Figueiredo, from our Low-Code Solutions business unit, presented the workshops “Project Management” and “Introduction to Low-Code with OutSystems”.

Leandro Seixas, from Low-Code Solutions, and Mário João Silva, from our Enterprise Solutions area, mentored the teams during the event and Mariana Junges was also part of the jury to evaluate the projects in the competition.

Among the innovative solutions presented, we highlight the Online Playground Platform. Developed by the “Zazes” team, the solution that allows you to play sports games with other people, in the form of a Plug-In for other platforms, was the big winner!

In second place was the “BIOPORT” team with the Covid Conditioner solution, which includes software and equipment to monitor the sequels caused by the impact of the COVID-19 infection on the body and on mental health.

The “Engenheiras Pupas” team won third place with a solution that aims to modernize the MySNS app, adding the functions of user contact / USL / HCP, scheduling appointments and updating patient data.

Keeping the focus on the continuous innovation of its offer, Noesis has a constant concern with research and sustainability, supporting initiatives that bring the organization closer to the academic environment. Ricardo Rocha, Director of Marketing & Communication at Noesis, says that “since the beginning we have believed and accepted to participate in What the Health Hackathon. We live in unprecedented times and this is the time to do everything in our power to contribute to the development of ideas and innovative technological solutions with a real impact on society. In addition, we want to remain close to the academic community and this technological marathon was an excellent opportunity to strengthen our collaboration with higher education institutions and with students. We want to congratulate all the participants for the incredible solutions they have developed! For such a short period of time, innovation has proven, once again, to be the solution to solve many of our problems! ”.
