Love of the Game - Hakathon 2021

The Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation is pleased to support the Love of the Game 2021 Hakathon, taking place from the 26th to the 28th of March 2021. 

Love of the Game, a new campaign led by its President Simon Shaw, MBE, former English rugby player, seeks to unite the fields of sport, technology, science, academia and business to identify, invest and implement innovative solutions that will mitigate the health risks arising in so many sports, whether team or individual, contact or non-contact.

The Hakathon aims to bring the brightest minds across the Design (both User Experience and Product), Developer and Engineering worlds together with amateur and professional Sports People, Academics and Researchers in the Sport Health fields; to create solutions that prevent, diagnose and treat head injuries and concussion within sports.

During this virtual 2.5 day event, the Hakathon participants will connect with, and form cross-disciplinary teams, combining their knowledge to create innovations that have real-world applications that will improve the lives of those that love and play sports.

Simon Shaw MBE, President, Love of the Game:

“As an organisation which champions sport in children’s lives, we are delighted to welcome the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation as a key supporter in our mission to protect the sports we love for our future athletes.

Sport has the power to bring people together, across all levels. Together we have an opportunity to make real, positive and long-lasting change that will protect the sports we love and the players of all ages who play them, without the fear of sustaining potentially damaging head injuries. We look forward to working together and developing solutions that will enable everyone to fulfil their sporting dreams.”
