INVITATION: HILLA Sports Technology Growth Mill seminar

Growth opportunities for ICT in Sports: discuss business and development collaboration opportunities in top level sports with the US Olympic Committee and La Liga Lab, and join accelerated developments from research to business.
Date: Tue 05.07.2016

Finnish companies and researchers have been among the pioneers in taking sports analytics and sports technologies out of the labs into field uses, i.e. the actual locations and moments of training, play and recovery. The field is rapidly growing and international interest toward Finnish skill-sets and developments in this area is stronger than ever. For many companies in the field, Professional Sports is also an important first adopter market on the way to wider opportunities in Digital Health.

HILLA is a program designed to accelerate the process from research to business of Finnish ICT technologies, skills and research. Come join this HILLA Growth Mill seminar to learn about needs in Sports Analytics and discuss business and development collaboration possibilities.
