The Oxford X-Reality Hub, in partnership with the TORCH (en)coding Heritage Network, present Immers-Ed, a multi-disciplinary hackathon. The event, modeled upon traditional hackathons, brings together participants to creatively solve a problem in the course of three days of intense collaboration.

The hackathon seeks to mobilise global collaboration to create solutions to address COVID-19 challenges and for the post-pandemic recovery. There will be four challenges to address key industries and sectors affected by the global pandemic.These include:

Cultural Heritage: How can technology facilitate inclusivity and access in the cultural heritage sector?

Medicine/Healthcare: How can we redesign medical training, foster global collaboration, and improve patient care to save lives?

Education: How can we create more engaging learning experiences and foster academic success especially in distance-learning environments?

Environmental Sustainability: How can we emerge out of the pandemic and create more sustainable environmental practices?
Participants are invited to apply either individually or together with colleagues, as part of a team. No experience with hackathons or technical knowledge is required, just curiosity and a passion for building, creating and learning.
