Workshop on E-Textiles for Sports and Fitness Applications

14th July 2022, Jurys Inn East Midlands Airport

The E-Textiles Network workshop “E-Textiles for Sports and Fitness Applications” will be held on the 14th July at the Jurys Inn East Midlands Airport. The workshop will explore the role of wearable technology in elite sports and general consumer fitness applications and then identify opportunities for e-textile smart garment based wearables and the corresponding research challenges that need to be addressed. The workshop will be run as a one-day event, split into two halves with the morning session focusing on technology within sport and fitness and the afternoon focusing on how this technology can be implemented in e-textiles and the associated practical challenges.  There will be a small number of talks from leading industrial and academic speakers to provide context and inform the workshop activities.
