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.
The SINN-i emerged from the Sports-Innovation-Network (SINN) which was founded in 2010 in Munich. 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 first partner countries are Great Britain, Spain, Japan, South Africa and Germany, with further countries to be added shortly.. Today, the SINN-i consists of around 60 partners, creating and realising innovation.
