THURSDAY

International summit

When and where?

Thursday the 26th August 2021 you are invited to the Nordic Sports Innovation Summit – Industry Trends and Latest Research.

The summit is to be held on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Department of Sport and Clinical Biomechanics, University of Southern Denmark and is co-organised by Sports Lab Copenhagen and the University of Southern Denmark.

Summit content

The aim is to share the newest sports and health-related knowledge and trends and encourage and empower entrepreneurs, students, researchers and corporates to take a common approach to their innovation projects.

Sports innovation and the sports industry at large have evolved rapidly over the last decade and Nordic countries, who have a history of innovation and a tradition of being physically active, are a strong contributor. Over the recent years, we have seen many small companies being established in the sports, performance, health, and physical activity domains and increasing investments are being made in this fast-growing sector with huge potential.

Research and higher education in sports innovation have proven themselves in the fields of outdoor facilities, digitally augmented movement, social services, interaction design, game concepts, and many artefacts promoting adapted physical activity.

As industry and research are becoming increasingly interdependent drivers of an ambitious and healthy development of innovation in sports, we offer this unique opportunity of getting together to shape the future of sports innovation.

Take-aways from the summit will be:

  • The latest trends and innovations from inside the sports industry
  • Presentations of new ideas utilizing cutting-edge research-based knowledge
  • Networking between trendsetters, influencers and the most innovative researchers and entrepreneurs in the field of sports.
