Research in Sports science
Research in sports science mainly has a social focus.
Our research concentrates on child and youth sports (pressure from parents, nurture and ethical development, motivational climate, dropout, physical education and health in schools and sports schools), but we also research health-related and health-promotion issues connected to child development.
We also do research on chronic fatigue syndrome/burnout and the ends of elite sports careers. Several renowned and experienced researchers are connected to the subject and they produce quality research in their respective fields.
