Every sport has its rules!

  • As real sportsmen that we all are, we pay attention to a respectful and open minded contact within the community. Insults, abusive language and hostile contact will definitely not be tolerated.

  • The projects on ISPO OPEN INNOVATION may be cut into several different phases, each with its specific lead question. Please stick to the particular topic and provide your input when it is best fitting the theme. This way we all contribute to a nice and clean platform.

  • Before submitting your idea, please check if a similar idea has been posted already. Your in-put to such similar ideas is highly appreciated in form of comments. That way your ideas will be developed further in a true team spirit and the final results will be even better.

    Comments that reference to already existing ideas should be directly linked to this idea or enrich it with additional aspects.

  • Everybody is invited to voice is opinion and to challenge existing ideas. Please make sure to do so in a positive way that helps improve the existing idea. Together we want to create the best project outcome!

  • On ISPO OPEN INNOVATION we are working as a team to shape the world of sports to our demands. Get inspired by the ideas of others, but never copy those. Take those ideas that you like, twist and tweak them and create some unique idea to inspire the community.

  • We really love to see your contributions enriched with photos, sketches and visuals. Please make sure to upload only data that is not infringing on the copyrights of others and / or third parties. You are on the safe side if you upload pictures, visuals and sketches that you created yourself or that just shows you individually without any other persons.

I enjoy taking part in these projects because I like making things better. (...) You get the opportunity to see behind the scenes, while expressing not only your wishes, but also your criticisms. This helps to achieve the best possible result for everyone involved.

Testing the X-Bionic Effektor running set and the CEP WingTech shirt really broadened my horizons. Every tester is different and brings their own experiences and daily life with them into the test. It was very interesting to see the experiences that the other testers had with the products (...).
