Achievements

Even prior to its official inauguration, EPSI had started to make waves and create momentum in the sports innovation environment. Examples of this include:

  • The development and successful submission of the  Prosumer.net project together with other platforms such as the Footwear Platform and Euratex (the platform for the European Textiles Industry). Several EPSI members are involved in the development of the project. A more comprehensive description of the latter can be found on the project websites .
  • Following the first European Conference on Sportsinnovation in 2008, the PRO-FIT project was created. This demonstrates how the concepts of the sport Field labs  and movement stimulation are being developed and spread around several cities in the North-Eastern Europe Development. It also aims at developing innovative concepts within sport and movement stimulation in the triangular sports-industry-knowledge organisation. Heading the project is the  Sports & Technology foundation.
  • Several workshops which collaborate with the (Sport) Industry and Research Organisations are frequently held throughout Europe. These discuss areas that have proved problematic for the sports industry in the past, such as obesity, making elderly people more active and intelligent product creation.
