Sport Science Challenge

The challenge is 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

You can apply for funding of up to $100,000 to support your project—a total of up to $300,000 is available for the Sport Science Challenge program.

Projects might 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.

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

The closing date is 20 February 2017.
