Competitions and challenges

Competitions and challenges – both for students and for businesses – are commonly used these days to draw attention, to mobilise energy, to create ideas and to get people engaging in physical activity. Competitions and challenges and also awards and prizes can be used to put the spotlight on sports innovations and gather best practices. To win such a prize can be a next step for a project. For example in The Netherlands the National Sports Innovation Prize (NSIP) has been handed out annually since 2008.
