“Sport keeps us happy, healthy and motivated. Sport improves our overall performance. This is why our Department of Sport and Exercise Science focuses on the healthy and performance-enhancing effects of exercise and sport in its research and teaching. In the course of this, we take a closer look at different environments and framework conditions, whilst taking target groups and age structures into account. Another focal point in our work is planning, conducting and evaluating trainings to optimise the performance levels of athletes. “
