Innovation Challenge heading to Tallinn

The latest edition of the Innovation Challenge – powered by Sportradar – will take place in Tallinn on October 20th with students from in and around the Estonian capital getting the chance to innovate and create using our market-leading sports data.

The latest in the challenge series is free to enter and will take place on a one-day basis at the TalTech Mektory Innovation and Business Centre.

Beginning at 09:00 and continuing into the evening, students and young professionals will have the chance to create innovative and dynamic new products and tools using Sportradar data, with the help and support of industry experts from across the company.

Those mentors will help guide participants throughout the course of the day before teams present their ideas and a winner is crowned in an event that guarantees new and exciting innovations made off the back of sports data.

Dr. Malte Siegle, Head of Sportradar’s University & Research Programme, said: “We’re really excited to be bringing the Innovation Challenge to Tallinn – a city where we already do lots of great work with the help of our partners at The Tallinn University of Technology.

“Our Innovation Challenges always see lots of great ideas and innovations and we’re sure this edition will be no different – we can’t wait to see what the students in Tallinn come up with.”

Külliki Tafel-Viia, Head of Development Projects at the Open Academy of Tallinn University, said: “It’s clear that the Innovation Challenge is a great opportunity for students to have hands-on learning experience in solving real-life problems.

“In addition to the diversification of learning opportunities, it also helps strengthen university-industry collaboration.”

The deadline for students to apply is October 14th and those interested can apply via the Innovation Challenge website.
