Welcome to the Center for Health and Performance Development - CHP. At CHP, research, education, innovation, and test activities are conducted in an interdisciplinary and practical approach, focusing on health and performance development. CHP's facility on Skånegatan Gothenburg is a 3500 m2 meeting place for researchers, teachers and students. This is the place where we collaborate with our partners, who come from the sports sector, public authorities, companies, and other research and educational institutions.
Merging Performance of athletes and physical activity for health
At CHP it is not a question of choosing between the performance of athletes or physical activity for health. Instead, we take advantage of our collective knowledge and utilise research aimed to improve performance into physical activity and health or vice versa. For example, the methodological development on measuring Physical activity could be used to improve our testing of Athletes while the Test Center itself enables research into both healthy ageing and injury prevention of elite runners. In addition to this we also work together with Swedish and international companies to support their product development with our research around nutrition and biomechanics.
