Sport science expertise within the city/region of Groningen

Sport plays an important role in everyday life, whether it is in terms of healthy ageing, athletic performance, or socio-cultural benefits for wider society. At present the city/region of Groningen has a wide range of expertise in the area of sport science and sport related research.

The topics currently studied range from the identification and development of expertise in football players and other athletes, to the financial implications and logistics of organising major sporting events. From how to use performance data to select the best ten speed skaters to go to the Olympic games, to the effects of physical activity on cognitive function in the elderly and academic performance in youth.
