Research in sports science deals with phenomena and questions from the fields of sports and professional practice. We investigate these in eight sub-disciplines from basic research to practical application.
We maintain close cooperation with sports associations and schools, work together with sports teachers and support athletes and coaches. Our work is characterized by interdisciplinary cooperation within the faculty, with other faculties of the RUB, the universities of the University Alliance Ruhr (UAR) as well as national and international cooperation partners. Even beyond the core area of sports, our expertise offers a variety of points of contact for research and professional practice.
