Sport sciences are an intense domain of scientific activity gathering disciplinary approaches from physiology, biomechanics, psychology, pedagogy or sociology, with interdisciplinary approaches focused on practice contexts such as training and competition, exercise/physical activity for disease prevention and treatment, and physical education.
Consequently, the present Congress aims to join researchers and practitioners who perform their activity in Portugal, Spain, or in any Portuguese speaking country. It also aims to present and discuss international trends in sport sciences research, as the invited keynote speakers will show.
Research centres and high education institutes have here a platform to promote their scientific activity, attracting potential students for post-graduated degrees. This is also a space for internationalization, by means of networking with the international speakers and participants. All the delegates, researchers or practitioners, will be aware of updated sport sciences knowledge and its application.
This event is the contribution of the Department of Sport and Health of FMH, to the commemoration of the 80th birthday of FMH.
