  Wednesday, 31 May 2017: In an initiative sponsored by Sopra Steria and in association with Andy Murray and the Digital Health & Care Institute, six teams involving more than 30 teenagers across Scotland have been shortlisted to compete in the final of the inaugural #DigiInventorsChallenge, giving them the chance to develop a new invention that will transform health, fitness and wellbeing amongst the nation’s young people using technology.

Today's release from Digital Health & Care Institute (DHI) announces that, representing secondary schools, clubs and colleges in Edinburgh, Livingston, Kirkcaldy, Dumfries, Erskine and Aberdeenshire, the shortlisted teams submitted the strongest entries to the contest launched by world number one tennis star Andy Murray in partnership with the Digital Health & Care Institute (DHI) in January. The ideas include everything from fitness apps, gaming controllers and online challenges.

Following a #DigiInventorsBootcamp this autumn the winner will be announced and presented at “Andy Murray Live” at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow on 7 November 2017 and the overall winning team will then see their design developed into a prototype by DHI and Sopra Steria.
