This Royal Society conference brought together stakeholders from across industry, academia and competitive sport to explore how cutting-edge advances and innovations in data, modelling, simulation, and design engineering are enabling humans and machines to operate ever closer to peak functional and mechanical capacity. Talks included case studies from Formula 1, high-performance sport and Paralympic engineering, and will discuss the key scientific, translational and commercial opportunities and challenges of the coming decade within the elite and everyday sporting industries.
The conference concluded with a panel discussion to consider debates around ethics, accessibility, and how scientific and technical challenges and research gaps might be addressed to drive continued interdisciplinary innovation.
