On the occasion of its official launch to the wider sporting community at SportAccord Convention, currently taking place in Lausanne, ThinkSport today inaugurated a new tool which will help bring together sports-related expertise and excellence: a database featuring innovative sports-related projects. Accessible via ThinkSport’s website, the new database works with a search engine that enables users to filter by knowledge area(s), location and keywords.

Commenting on today’s launch at SportAccord Convention, Anna Hellman, Director of ThinkSport, said: "These are exciting times for us and we feel we are at the right place, at the right moment. During the last months we have been working hard to develop our services and products and it is all starting to come together now. Our objective is to bring together key players connected to sport in one way or the other, help them to drive talent and innovation and thus add value to their activities and, of course, to the development of international sport. Our new project database will help professionals create business efficiencies and avoid the duplication of activities. In a few weeks’ time we will also make available a comprehensive directory of key organisations and companies working within sport."

For each project, the database presents a project description, a photo gallery, the field of expertise, sports involved, contact details, the implementing organisation or company and partners. There is also a reference to other projects in the same field.

Other operational ThinkSport services include an information office with customised support, currently located in the Maison du Sport International in Lausanne, and a calendar of sports-related business conferences, meetings and events taking place in Switzerland, available on www.thinksport.org.

The directory to be launched in a few weeks’ time will feature contact details and the descriptions of sport organisations, research and development institutes, educational bodies, businesses, health institutions, the public sector, international organisations and NGOs – all being part of the ThinkSport network. It will be a useful tool for users to see who is out there.

All the tools provided by ThinkSport – the project database, the directory as well as the calendar – are constantly being updated to keep the information contained within relevant and reliable.

During SportAccord Convention, taking place at the SwissTech Convention Centre in Lausanne, Switzerland, from 17-22 April, ThinkSport shares a booth with three of its founding members – the City of Lausanne, the Canton of Vaud, and the Swiss Confederation.

Meet us at Booth 16, Campus level / Floor 1 and join in our reception on Wednesday, 20 Aril 2016, at 4p.m.
