About SINN-i

The international Sports-Innovation-Network (SINN-i) is a front-running network stimulating and creating innovations in the field of healthstyle with the core focus of bringing more joy of movement into the world.

The network unites established sports companies and start-ups, technology and marketing experts, basic science and applied research institutions, inventors and platforms. Thus, the SINN-i provides for technological and scientific expertise as a basis for innovative developments. It comprises competences in the fields of sport, health, sciences, technology, materials, engineering and education.

Since 2017, the network is internationalising, and funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (funding measure “Internationalisation of German Leading-Edge Clusters, Forward-Looking Projects and Comparable Networks”).

The network consists of three projects: Active City Innovation, Go,WannGo! and STEM on the Move.
