Field of Research for Sports Sciences
A preoccupation with the social and individual significance of physical activity, training, sport and play is at the heart of this branch of science. At the Institute of Human Movement Science, Sport and Health, interdisciplinary research is conducted in the three orientations of health, performance and education. These orientations are covered through the research disciplines of movement- and sport pedagogy, biomechanics, movement-, and training science, public health and exercise physiology, training and training therapy.
The research ranges from training planning, analysis, diagnostics and measurement of movement processes and movement, to a diversity-sensitive engagement with movement, play and sport as an educational topic, as well as the development of movement programs for individuals and population groups, to modeling in order to offer future-oriented socially relevant solutions at the behavioral and relationship level. Different areas of movement research offer opportunities for interdisciplinary research projects to develop innovative approaches.
