OSLO: Play Magnus Group and Aker BioMarine have signed a four-year agreement for LYSOVETA by Aker BioMarine to serve as the Official Learning Partner for the Meltwater Champions Chess Tour, a news release said.
Aker BioMarine is committed to improving human and planetary health and has recently made significant advances in understanding how essential fatty acids such as EPA and DHA, derived from Antarctic krill, can contribute to the healthy functioning of the brain.
This research and development led to the launch of their latest breakthrough product, LYSOVETA, which unlocks new opportunities to further explore the potential of targeted delivery of EPA/DHA into the brain.
Andreas Thome, CEO of Play Magnus Group, said: “Chess and Learning are closely linked. Chess is also one of the most recognized ways to train the brain, and to preserve brain functions. We are looking forward to working with Aker BioMarine long-term to innovate learning through chess and LYSOVETA.”
Matts Johansen, CEO of Aker BioMarine, said: “We know that LYSOVETA can play an important role in numerous aspects of brain health, and by partnering with the brilliant minds in the chess community, we can shine a light on the advancements within cognitive health.”
The current season of the Meltwater Champions Chess Tour runs from November 2020 to September 2021. Magnus Carlsen and the rest of the world elite players are currently competing in a total of ten online tournaments over a full competitive season.
The third tournament, Opera Euro Rapid, runs from 6 February 2021 to 14 February 2021 and is broadcast on TV2, Eurosport and online streaming platforms Twitch and YouTube across multiple languages.
The partnership with LYSOVETA by Aker BioMarine comes in addition to the previously announced Tour partnerships with Meltwater, Skilling, Airthings, Opera and Julius Bär.
