What is the COMPAR-EU project about?

COMPAR-EU project aims to identify and compare the most effective and cost-effective self-management interventions (SMIs) for adults in Europe living with one of the four high-priority chronic conditions: type 2 diabetes, obesity, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and heart failure. The SMIs help patients to increase their skills and confidence in managing their chronic condition with the intention to promote and maintain, their health. Our main product is an innovative information technology platform featuring self-management tools to support decision-making on self-management interventions for different end users such as healthcare professionals, policymakers, guideline developers, as well as patients.

What is the aim of the hackathon?

We are looking for young researchers and professionals who will be working together in interdisciplinary teams to maintain the sustainability of the COMPAR-EU platform from the different perspectives, for instance:

  • how to use artificial intelligence (AI) for automatic updates of evidence into decision-tools
  • how to use application programming interface (API) to transfer the data to other applications

The most important thing is to have fun and share new knowledge with other hackers!
