When the new School of Sport Science at the University of Gothenburg was inaugurated on the 16th of March, Smart Textiles were there with MedTech West and Imego AB. Guests were invited to seminars, tours of the new performance and test centre, as well as performances by dancers and gymnasts. A special guest was His Royal Highness Prince Daniel.
The School of Sport Science at the University of Gothenburg has been located in different places around Gothenburg, but has now been assigned to facilities among the major arenas on Skånegatan. Close to Scandinavium, Valhalla swimming arena and Ullevi, the new facilities also offer access to newly constructed test and research areas for movement studies and more.
A wide variety of companies and organisations were invited to the inauguration. Smart Textiles were represented, and so were MedTech West and the Imego institute, all three presenting current research in the textiles, health and sports of the future.
The inauguration was rounded off with ribbon-cutting by HRH Prince Daniel, Duke of Västergötland, and an exclamation that the new School of Sport Science was inaugurated.
