Nordplus Idrott

The Nordplus-Idrott Network (NIN) is aimed at institutions with postgraduate degree programs in sport and physical education in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway and Sweden. At present, there are 23 active members in the network.

The main activities carried out by NIN comprise student and teacher exchanges, intensive courses and the development of courses in sports and physical education.

There have been six specific groups attached to Nordplus-Idrott, which have had its own professional focus such as gymnastic apparatus work, ball games, swimming, dance, sports coaching and outdoor life.

NIN has only been supported for student and teacher exchanges the last 5 years, therefore most of the specific groups have become passive.

The swimming group is still active, and four universities, University of Southeast Norway (Bø) (coordinator), Norwegian School of Sport Sciences, Swedish School of Sport and Health Sciences, Stockholm and Holar University College, Iceland has established a joint Nordic Master in Outdoor Studies (Friluftsliv Studier)

Also, in 2020 NIN has applied for funds for student and teacher exchanges as well as for Network development.

 The network is coordinated by the Institute of Sports Science and Clinical Biomechanics at the University of Southern Denmark. In addition, each member has a local coordinator
