SPORTS & INNOVATION
Like all other aspects of American society, data and new technologies will continue to impact sports at all levels. From enhancing and evaluating performance to designing new equipment, technological and practical innovations will change sports forever. The Rose Bowl Institute will address ways that these advances can aid in the practice and appreciation of sports.
It’s easy to celebrate the glories of sporting success, but equally important to understand team dynamics in winning and losing, and the greater role that innovations in sports can also play in our national culture and global community.
