Home to a unique and valuable technology and research network


The Canton de Vaud, with Lausanne as its capital city, is one of the main centers of research and innovation in the world. Lausanne has the largest university campus in Switzerland, covering the University of Lausanne (UNIL), the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL). It also hosts several public and private research institutions, many of which have a specific focus on sport management, research and technology. To best assist IFs in capitalising on this network opportunity through the development of long-term and sustainable partnerships, the Olympic Capital together with the International Olympic Committee have developed a new initiative called “ThinkSport”. ThinkSport is a unique network of international sports institutions, pioneering business establishments and respected academic organisations, joining forces to drive talent and innovation in sport!
