Innovation Hackathon - Sports engineering

May 03 to 05, 2023

Responding, in 3 days, to innovation issues in the field of sport.

From May 3 to 5, the Technosport de Luminy sports engineering innovation hackathon took place. Organized by our IHME(Interaction Homme Matériel Environnement) specialized master's program, in partnership with major players in the world of sport, this hackathon saw 4 multidisciplinary teams compete. Each team was made up of a pair of IHME students and students from Aix-Marseille University. The aim of this business game was to respond, in 3 days, to innovation issues in the field of sport. To achieve this, each team had to develop marketable products or start-up projects through a concrete realization (prototype or physical model).

The challenges were many and varied, and the teams worked hard to meet them, benefiting from the expertise of their professional mentors. Their creativity, perseverance and team spirit enabled innovative ideas and concrete projects to emerge.

All in all, this sports engineering innovation hackathon was a great success, helping to stimulate innovation in a constantly evolving field and offering students a concrete and enriching experience.
