Welcome to our department – with a holistic approach to people's experience of food and meals, as well as sport and physical activity! We aim to lay the ground for good health and sustainable development through research and education.

Central themes within Food and Nutrition include eating habits, meals, the significance of food in relation to public health, as well as leadership and organisation in restaurants and institutional households. Sport Science covers a broad spectrum of physical activities, from exercise and health promotion to competitive and elite sports.
