On 15th February the Sports Technology Awards, Europe’s most prestigious recognition for innovation and visionary excellence between industry and sports, announced its short-listed candidates for the 2018 Awards in London in May.

A high profile panel of judges, including Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson, Marlon Devilish MBE & Pete Samara (Director of Innovation & Technology, F1), selected the short-list of entries across a wide range of sports and countries. Right to Dream and Tullow Oil have been shortlisted within the category of Most Innovative Sports Partnership for the work we are doing in using S.T.E.M education and robotics, alongside the vehicle of football, to inspire social and technological change.

Other successful short-listed applicants include industry giants such as Puma, Juventus, ATP, Audi, Gatorade, BBC Sport and Sacramento Kings. Last year’s winners of this category were Hewlett-Packard & DS Virgin Racing Formula E.

Since Right to Dream and Tullow’s application to the Sports Technology Awards, the Right to Dream robotics team has gone on to be selected to represent Ghana at the World Robofest Championships in the US in May. This nomination acts as a great support and recognition for their dedication, and for the ongoing commitment from Tullow in creating a legacy for education in Ghana.
