Center for Health and Performance


The Center for Health and Performance is working to become an internationally recognized research center in the field of health promotion and sport performance. Through a multidisciplinary approach and in close collaboration with national and international stakeholders from both the academia, the public health sector and the sport community our purpose is to strengthen the areas of knowledge in physical activity, sports, nutrition, performance development and health promotion.

Our research projects contribute to new guidelines and recommendations as well as the development of new products for the sport industry. We support local sports clubs and global federation on issues such injury prevention, nutrition, performance development and testing of athletes.

A relevant example of how the multidisciplinary approach is integrated in the Center activities is how we utilise the methodological competences and methods primarily used for promoting sport performance in other areas such as medicine, physiotherapy and engineering.
