Closing the books of 2021


Each year CHP produces an Annual report that summarises our scientific output and key activities during the year, and for 2021 this report is now finalised.

Despite another year with substantial restrictions, the Center for Health and Performance could look back at many good results for our research and other activities. 

For example, our publication output increased compared to 2020, with approximately 47 peer-reviewed original articles, 1 book, 8 book chapters, 3 doctoral theses and 20 additional publications (e.g. conference papers, non-peer reviewed articles). 

We are also happy that three of our PhD students could finish their education and that a new online-education on Physical activity, Health and Nutrition was launched. 

On top of this, we have continued to contribute to the development of GoCo health Innovation City, both as a speaking partner and as responsible for their scientific programme.  

In the report you will find a summary of our activities

About Center for Health and Performance

In 2017, CHP was established as an official center at the University of Gothenburg. The vision is to become an internationally recognized research center in the field of health promotion and sport performance through multidisciplinary collaboration, innovative entrepreneurship, and product development in collaboration between academia and the surrounding community. 

CHP is a collaboration between Faculty of Education and the Medical Faculty (Sahlgrenska Academy) and includes the Department of Food and Nutrition, and Sport Science as host and the Institute of Medicine.
