Netwerkevent SportTechMatch bij Tourstart in Düsseldorf

Het begint langzamerhand een traditie te worden: een matchmaking event voor partijen op het grensvlak van sport en technologie, tijdens het startevenement van de Tour de France. Na eerder Utrecht en Sheffield (VK) te hebben aangedaan, vindt de start van de Tour – en daarmee ook de SportTechMatch – dit jaar plaats in het Duitse Düsseldorf. Wellicht ook voor u een mooie gelegenheid om nieuwe inspiratie en contacten op te doen.

Vanwege het internationale karakter is onderstaande tekst in het Engels.


Sport Technology Matchmaking at the Grand Départ Düsseldorf

Enterprise Europe Network invites you to the SportTechMatch 2017, an international matchmaking event that will be organised on 30 June 2017 in the wake of the start of the Tour de France (‘Grand Départ’) in Düsseldorf, Germany.

The cluster Sports & Technology is involved in the organisation of this event.

The Tour de France is the biggest annual sports event in the world and it combines tradition with the latest innovations in several areas.
