Thermo Tokyo

Beat the Heat

A ZonMw project focusing on cooling strategies for the Dutch Olympic team with dr. T.M.H. Eijsvogels as project leader. The project started in September 2018.

  • Project members: RUMC, VU, TUD, NOC*NSF, HAN, myTemp, Inuteq, Magic Marine and Sizing Science

During the 2020 Olympic games in Tokyo it will be exceptionally hot and humid such that athletes will have difficulties of sufficiently cooling down their body temperature. The goal is to investigate and validate various cooling strategies.

The Emerging Materials group will develop dedicated cooling garments for different sports brances.
