About this event

What will the future of work look like? That could be up to you. The upcoming Hack-A-Bot Merck Hackathon in Darmstadt gives you the chance to build a solution to one of five key challenges around automating manual work at Merck or in the healthcare industry using bots. Within 24 hours, you could be on the way to implementing your idea for real!

Win prizes worth >10k€ including cash, trips and hardware!

The 2-day event to be held in partnership with Microsoft and Universitätsklinikum Schleswig-Holstein (UKSH), at the Merck Innovation Center in Darmstadt on June 15/16 will be our biggest Hackathon yet.

The goal? To create solutions and bots that will enable ‘the future of work’ in the office, in the production environment, or in healthcare by automating tedious manual tasks. It gives techies and creative non-techies alike the chance to showcase their skills, win cool prizes and realize the best ideas in a supported project afterwards. So, if you are a curious mind, passionate about bots, machine learning, or healthcare, this is for you!
