‘Engineering the future Olympics’

23 Jul ‘Engineering the future Olympics’

What do the Olympic Games mean for the urban development of a city? How can the optimum conditions be created for athletes as well as visitors? When building the facilities, how can we take into account their use not only during the Olympics, but also afterwards? Which new technological innovations could be deployed during ‘future Olympics’ and what Dutch knowledge is already in use during Olympic Games?

On Monday 14 September KIVI Sports Engineering and the TU Delft Sports Engineering Institute discussed these and other issues surrounding the facilities for the Olympics, as well as new technical developments in this field.
