Sport and Innovation Summit

30 May 2023
Brussels, Belgium

The European Commission is organising the Sport and Innovation Summit on 30 May. The event will take place in the Schuman room of the Berlaymont building in Brussels.

The European Commission will host this first-of-a-kind event bringing together innovators, researchers, companies, and policymakers involved in innovation in sport to discuss the challenges and opportunities for the future.

A closed session in the morning will be dedicated to speed dating for innovators to

  • find partners to develop their ideas
  • meet Programme Managers from the European Commission to learn more about EU funding programmes

A roundtable discussion will take place in the afternoon, from 14:30 to 18:00.

The goal is to explore athlete performance, sustainability and digitalisation as some of the latest trends in innovation in sport.

An exhibition will display some examples of cutting-edge innovations in the field of sport. 

The afternoon session of the event will be webstreamed. The link will be added to this page ahead of the meeting.
