KU Leuven (Sports.Tech), U Gent (Victoris), MIC Vlaanderen and imec join forces to encourage innovation in sports. With HACK4SPORTS we want to explore opportunities and bring up ideas to develop new solutions.
During the hackathon you will tackle one of the challenges below using technology. In a small team of 4-6 people you come up with a solution and work out a proof-of-concept and business plan. Throughout the weekend coaches will help you with different aspects: use wearable technology, set up experiments, analyze data and build algorithms, write software, make a business case and pitch your idea.
If you are passionate about sports and technology and have an entrepreneurial spirit, we would love to have you on board. We want to bring together people with different backgrounds: athletes, sports scientists, sports enthousiasts, data scientists, engineers, software coders, user experience experts, marketeers, business people, investors … We are looking for students as well as professionals. You can register as a team or as an individual. In the latter case, we will link you with other participants that have complementary skills, so you form a great team.
You will discover new technology and meet a lot of people. You will learn how you can transform an idea into a real product. The best teams will be supported after the hackathon and might kick off their own tech start-up.
Register now as the number of seats is limited.
We selected a number of technologies that you can use to build your proof-of-concept.Check them out
