Movesense Academic Program

 

Movesense Academic Program equips scientists and researchers with sensor hardware and tools for efficiently measuring and collecting motion and physiology data. The aim of the program is to grow Movesense awareness in the academic world and to support promising research projects with tools and solutions for efficient data collecting. The program is initiated together with our development partner Kaasa solution GmbH from Germany.

 

 

Key guidelines

  • Researchers and teams apply for the program. Movesense selects and invites projects based on applications.
  • Movesense supplies the selected research teams with up to 20 Movesense sensors and associated accessories such as heart rate straps. The exact amount of supplied equipment depends on the project scope.
  • Kaasa solution GmbH makes its Data Collector mobile application available to the research projects.
  • Movesense team and Kaasa will support the project participants with technical questions.
  • Researchers agree to mention Movesense in scientific articles and other publications related to the project and refer to www.movesense.com as a source for more information on Movesense when possible.
  • Research projects agree to provide the Movesense team with material related to the research project that can be used in news articles on www.movesense.com and shared in Movesense social media.
  • Researchers allow Movesense to list their project as part of Movesense Academic Program in Movesense communication.

Selection criteria

  • Innovativeness and usefulness of the research project
  • Potential of commercial applications of the project results
  • Utility value of Movesense sensors for completing the project
  • Potential of the project to build awareness for Movesense
  • Additional non-published criteria of Movesense and Kaasa solution teams

Disclaimer

Movesense team has the right to select applications at its own consideration and is not obliged to explain why a project was selected or not selected to the program.

 

How to apply

Interested researchers send an application to the Movesense team via an online form. The application includes a short description of the project, project timeline, and a description of how the Movesense sensors would be used.

Application period starts on November 1st, 2019 and is open until further notice. Movesense team reviews the applications on weekly basis and invites up to three projects per quarter to the program. First projects will be selected during Q4 2019 if qualified candidates exist.

Movesense team and Kaasa solution warmly welcome academic teams, researchers and students to apply for the Movesense Academic Program!
