ESSI Symposium

November 2, 2017

The Exercise & Sport Science Initiative (ESSI) is a unique research initiative managed by the U-M Office of Research and Athletic Department. We will provide attendees with a full day of talks and panel discussions related to healthy aging and healthy communities, sport technology R&D, AR/VR in sport, data analytics, and injury prevention. This event provides an opportunity to network and discuss the latest trends and innovations in sport science. The symposium is intended primarily for industry guests and U-M faculty, researchers, clinicians, and staff who do work related to exercise and sport science.
