The workshop focuses on innovation in sport and vitality for the society in public spaces. The groups should consider data-enabled possibilities (data-enabled technology is often targeted for sport for the mass, while data-driven technology is mostly targeted for elite sport) and societally supported, in sight of Tokyo2020 Olympic games:
Tokyo Vision 2020 sets a goal of creating a society where everyone can enjoy sport. Targeted programmes will help create a more active city where facilities and the influence of athletes encourage the community – especially the next generation – to lead healthy and sport-based lives, in line with the Games vision.
The TMG also established in 2010 the “Bureau of Sports” to create the ‘City of Sports - Tokyo’ programme, where all residents - “anybody, anytime, anywhere“ - can enjoy sport. Tokyo 2020 would set an impressive new benchmark in terms of Games plans and legacies being so intertwined with a city’s overall long-term urban and sport strategies

The workshop is expected to last a week (plus weekends), giving the participants the opportunity the acquire sufficient knowledge and skills to perform the workshop, the time to explore and implement their design proposition, and to perform a final presentation before a panel. The workshop consists in a limited number of lectures supporting the workshop ambition, and mostly in a design project on the topic formulated by the workshop organisers and partners.
The outcome should consist in a series of propositions with the following properties:
. aiming at supporting vitality for the mass,
. supported by psychological, physical, and/or societally arguments,
. including a proof of concept of higher quality,
. having entrepreneurship potentials in a collaboration context between TEP and Noord-Brabant.
The best project(s) will received support in form of entrepreneurial venture. The different partners of the workshop contribute at different levels and different time of the workshop. Eindhoven University of Technology overviews the preparation and the process of the workshop. The University of Tsukuba will host the workshop.
