More than 165 software engineers, designers and other technology experts will be asked to help inspire and invent the future of banking this weekend at the RBS Technology Solutions Centre in Edinburgh.  

They are being asked to brainstorm ideas for new apps and services that could form the basis for tomorrow’s banking at the Hack (Make!) The Bank hackathon, being run by RBS in partnership with the Open Bank Project. 

The Open Bank Project aims to help banks securely and quickly improve their digital offerings by bringing them together with leading financial technology companies.

RBS is committed to excellence in technology and innovation. The hackathon will give us the chance to demonstrate our own expertise as well as showing our openness to new thinking from outside the bank and our willingness to work with new partners to create the best products and services for our customers. 

The event will run for 48 hours. A hackathon is a creative marathon where prototypes of mobile and web applications are quickly developed by small teams competing with each other.

Hack (Make!) The Bank is a global series of hackathons. You can follow events over the weekend on twitter at: #HackMakeTheBank.
