What is SINN-i?
The international Sports-Innovation-Network (SINN-i) is a front-running network stimulating and creating innovations in the field of Healthstyle (physical activity, sports & health) with the core focus of bringing more joy of movement into the world.
The network encompasses not only an amazing array of highly competent partners representing all relevant groups of stakeholders (e.g. sports, health, sciences, technology, materials, engineering and education), but even more brings together enthusiastic and passionate innovators in the field of physical activity.
The SINN-i offers the possibility of…
…easy and direct access to partners, expertise and knowledge
…cooperating in collaboration projects with partners from all over the world and sharing resources
…benefitting from more than 20 years of experience in innovation networks and innovation work
A continuing urbanisation, a decrease of urban green spaces and an increase of sedentary behavior. These are current developments within our societies.
“How to turn cities into active cities?” – We aim to provide answers to this important global question!
We will investigate how cities can become places of health and well-being and develop and implement 12 experimentation scenarios in Germany, Great Britain, Japan, South Africa and Spain. As a final result, we will publish a guideline compendium on “How to turn cities into active cities”!
Whereas opportunities for sports and movement exist plentiful, the current offers are not attractive to all the people.
“WannaGos” are those people, who would like to be physically active, but who do not find suitable offers.
Therefore, in this project we want to investigate motivations and lifestyle parameters of “WannaGo people” concerning physical activity and incorporating these into the development of new movement offers.
Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) are boring for pupils, especially for girls? There is a lack of specialists within certain working environments and a great need of educated people?
For tackling this challenge, we want to develop movement based STEM learning modules for schools.
Thereby, we want to attract the attention of young people by developing this new approach: A combination of learning, experencing, being active and having fun!
