see http://www.itinventiontest.com.au/ for details
“We are proud to have the Australian Institute of Sport – CSIRO Partnership as a sponsor of this year’s competition. As a result, we have one industry-based stream as part of the 2011 competition – being the ‘IT-based sports technology’ stream.
For this stream the judging panel is particularly interested in submissions that;
- have relevance to athletes and their coaches going into a major event such as the London 2012 Olympics;
- will have the biggest potential impact on the athlete’s performance (even though it may not necessarily have the biggest commercial potential), and;
- may be an adaption of an existing product / service or a newly developed product / service.
The $5,000 cash prize for this stream is sponsored by the Australian Institute of Sport and CSIRO Partnership. Submissions for this stream will be eligible for all prizes.”
