The next Nudgeathon run by our partners at the Warwick Business School, Coventry will take place in Spring. In fact they have two events lined up - the first one from 11 to 12 February 2017 and the second one on 30 to 31 March 2017. Applications for both events are now open.
To apply, you will need to:
Record a short video, no longer than two minutes, in which you will introduce yourself. In the video, tell us what is your name, where you’re from, what and where you are studying and why we should pick you to participate in the next Nudgeathon! Once you record the video, upload it to YouTube and provide us with the link in the application. Answer a case study question. Tell us why you want to take part in Nudgeathon. Ready? Great!
For more information please contact the Nudgeathon Team.
A bit more about Nudgeathon (from their website):
As its name implies, Nudgeathon is a nudging marathon. The idea to organise this event came from hackathons – events in which programmers work on projects in order to learn, network and create usable solutions. We want you, university students, to work on a real behavioural problem and to develop ideas to help people make better decisions.
The main objective of Nudgeathon is to develop implementable solutions to a given social issue. You will be working in teams of four to six. Since Nudgeathon is all about creativity and novelty, we are looking for teams made up of students of diverse backgrounds: behavioural science, psychology, economics, but also computer science, engineering, cultural anthropology and design.
The problem briefs are provided by Partners that we select for every event. The briefs are chosen to ensure its topicality and current importance period.
