Digital innovation in University and College Sport

Technological development is causing major transformations in our society and it is reshaping our environment, our way of thinking and our habits through interconnections and intercommunication around the world.
Technology innovation is continuously evolving our approach to bureaucracy or to assignments in work life, also within Universities or Colleges.

Increasing digitalisation provides new opportunities to better manage, (self-)monitor, communicate and stimulate participation as well as performance in sport and physical activity.

While making our life easier in many ways, digitalisation also challenges existing practices and necessitates a new and more flexible approach to sport and organizational management.

Millennials are our future target and, since they are born in a digitalised era, Universities including sport services and facilities must be ready to welcome them according to students’ digital abilities.

For the 2019 ENAS Forum & Assembly, the University of Trento will focus on a couple of challenges and opportunities including development of technologies for sport activities and digitalisation of facilities.

Digitalisation touches the field of physical activity and sport in many ways, with a positive impact especially on five macro areas: management-organization, monitoring & self-monitoring, gamification, communication, employability.

On the other hand, digitalisation is radically changing the approach to sport activities, as underlined by the increasing use of virtual trainings, smartphone applications, and the development of eSports.

UniTrento Sport is the university network of services and sports facilities in Trento and its province.
