The Nordplus-Idrott Network hosts the 2nd NORDPLUS-IDROTT Conference in cooperation with University of Southern Denmark
2013 marks the 25th anniversary of the Nordplus-Idrott Network. This milestone is celebrated with a scientific and professional conference on the overall theme Next practice in physical education and movement science.
The conference strives to bring together specialists from different areas to debate and present enquiries into the many ways physical activity and, specifically, physical education influences human life. Attracting researchers and professionals from areas such as sport and exercise science, physical education, health and applied biomechanics, the conference will be a prominent opportunity to get insight and overview of new studies and evidence on a number of key topics within movement science and physical education.
Moreover, the conference is designed in order to encourage participants to identify, explore and discuss ways to influence developments in sports, physical activity and physical education at local, national and international levels.
In this way we honor the overall purpose of the Nordplus-Idrott Network – namely in promoting innovation, cooperation and solid partnership building between higher education institutions and other relevant organizations in order to strengthen the broad area of sports science and physical education.
