The ProFit project combines technology, sports and health through the development of sport field-labs.
ProFit is funded by the European Union, under the Interreg IVB North West Europe programme.
What is a field-lab?
A field-lab for sport innovation is a research and development location in a real-life setting where citizens engage in sports and play activities. Businesses can install new product prototypes or production models in the field-lab where the end-users can use and test them as part of regular sports activity.
Field-labs will be developed in four European cities: Eindhoven (Nl), Delft (Nl), Kortrijk (Be) and Sheffield (UK).
A supportive research programme provides scientific rigour to the development and operation of the field-labs and products. Participating universities are Sheffield Hallam University, University of Ulster, Eindhoven University of Technology, Delft University of Technology and Howest (University College West Flanders).
