What do top-level sports and technology have to do with each other? Everything! Top-level sport is extremely demanding, and not just in physical terms. In order to keep on improving their performances, top-level athletes need to look beyond just their physical capacities; they need to think about clothing and equipment, materials and design.
Can it be made faster, higher, with less drag? These are just the kind of questions TU Delft can provide answers to.
TU Delft Sports Engineering Institute is a Certified Partner of SportInnovator and is therefore part of the SportInnovator network, the sports innovation network in the Netherlands.
SportInnovator is an incentive program of the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport with the aim of increasing the efficiency of innovation in sport and also contributing to a more vital society.
In a national network of 12 Sportinnovator centers, government, scientists, sports professionals and entrepreneurs work together on groundbreaking innovations that promote performance in top and recreational sports and also encourage people to adopt a more active lifestyle. The development of Sport Data Valley also contributes to this objective. The SportInnovator program is implemented by ZonMw on behalf of the Topteam Sport.
