What on earth is this OLVI-säätiö NeuroChallenge?

It’s a 48h long innovation competition,

with a mission of seeking solutions that promote better brain health of the aging population.

We have a total prize money of 20 000€ for the best teams.

Do you have an idea, or a solution – or just your burning will and enthusiasm – that might help us to fulfill our mission?


When & Where?

We will have preceding seminar on 3.11. that will give you scientific background, research and insights into the challenge theme. Read more here!

The hackathon competition will be a 48h social weekend of work and fun on 3-5.11. Read more here!


How it works?

Innovation is a team effort and NeuroChallenge is no exception. During one “hackathon-like” weekend and 48 hours the teams will define and develop their ideas into rock-solid solutions with a help of facilitated innovation process and hard-core mentors.

Although we encourage you to find your soulmates and form a team early on, you do not need to have either a team or specific solution ready before the event. Open mind and a burning heart is enough. On the other hand, if you do already have your dream-team, an idea, or a “hatching” solution that will somehow help solving the Grand Challenge, that’s just superb!


What else?

Prior to the NeuroChallenge event a professional Seminar is being organized. The Seminar shall give a scientific perspective to theme and topics of NeuroChallenge 2023. The aim is to provide solid academic background, and also, deeper understanding and clarity on those specific challenges of NeuroChallenge 2023.
