The association aims to put relevant (sports) scientific research into practice in the form of products and/or services for governments, social and non-profit organizations, such as schools, municipalities and sports clubs.

Sportamundi is the main contact point for the development of broadly applicable (sports) innovations. That is why Sportamundi offers:

  • the translation of scientific insights and results into products and services
  • the development and support of practical tools
  • the development of implementation plans the organization of dialog with stakeholders and parties that benefit from these products and services
  • the search for funding
  • the coordination of the implementation
