Running 20/20 Meetup @Designlab UT 20 Sep 2017 - Running Behaviour Special

More and more runners use wearables, apps and other technology to improve their performance or the overall running experience. The impact and effect of the technology on the runner’s behavior is huge, but the behaviour of the runner itself is a key-driver for many things, especially for reducing the injury risk.

This Running 20/20 Sep 2017 Meetup (https://www.meetup.com/Running2020/events/241509421/) will discuss the topic Running Behaviour and aims to connect people from engineering, design, psychology and sports science, in order to co-create new products and services that reinforce good running behaviour and enable a great running experience.

This meetup is a joint venture together with Armağan Karahanoğlu (PhD) of the department of Design, Production and Management Faculty of Engineering Technology (https://www.utwente.nl/en/designlab/) and the DesignLab of the University Twente (https://www.utwente.nl/en/). This Meetup will be hosted by DesignLab (https://www.utwente.nl/en/designlab/).

In this meetup, three speakers will deliver a 30 minute 'Ted Talk-like' presentation. All presentations are high-content and are meant to trigger thoughts and (inter) action. Naturally, drinks and snacks will be provided.
