Wednesday, on the 7th of July, Orange Sports Forum organized a meeting with 30 sports related companies at the Olympic Training Centre Papendal in Arnhem, the Netherlands. The meeting started with a Q&A session with Ms. Marianne Timmer (OLY), three-time gold medallist ice speed skating at the Winter Olympics! It was an inspiring session about her career, but also about the role of sports and vitality for a healthier lifestyle.
On behalf of the Inno4Health-project, Mr. Ad de Beer presented the project outlines, partners, use cases and many more. The presentation was a perfect match with the discussion with Marianne Timmer. Since Ino4Health showed what the project can do to increase health and vitality in healthcare and sports.
Also, Mr. Gunther Vanpraet (Basketball Club Filou Oostende, Belgium) presented the concept of the BeNeLiga Basketball, a shared league between the Netherlands and Belgium. Which gave great insights in the development of basketball in the Netherlands and Belgium, and about the challenges of running a basketball club.
After the presentation there where fruitful interactions and discussions between the companies, which gave nice opportunities for follow up.
