Hack the Hospital: 5G Transatlantic Lab 2021

B5G Transatlantic Lab is a project created by Garage Stories and the Mobile World Capital Barcelona to explore the potential of 5G and XR technologies applied to paediatric healthcare. We aim at fostering new connections between creatives and technologists based in Barcelona and Boston to develop innovative projects that can reduce the negative impact of long term paediatric patients (and families) experience at the hospital. In short: Make children’s stay at the hospital as enjoyable and less traumatic as possible!
Technologists, healthcare experts, educators, storytellers, designers, creative minds:

JOIN the innovation lab teams that will improve the lives of chronically ill children who spend much of their lives in pediatric hospitals!
