Sport Science Challenge

The challenge was designed to encourage innovation in sport, with a focus on:

  • enhancing the competitiveness of our elite athletes and teams, including those preparing for the 2018 Commonwealth Games or for the 2020 Olympic Games
  • promoting healthy and active lifestyles through greater participation in sport and exercise.

Funding of up to $100,000 will be allocated to each project with a total of up to $300,000 available for the Sport Science Challenge program.

Projects may include:

  • the use of novel software or hardware technology, products, or processes to address the challenge objectives
  • the application and combination of insights or technologies from a number of disciplines such as software, engineering, biomedical, sports psychology and behavioural insights.

Successful projects will involve a Queensland-based business and/or partnership (e.g. between businesses, research organisations, sporting bodies, health organisations) with an end-user organisation.

Applications are now closed.
