Research within the Center for Human Movement Sciences
Education and research are intensely connected in the Center for Human Movement Sciences (CHMS). PhD's, master and bachelor students work together in an academic learning community and inspiring environment, playing a pivotal role in our research success.
The Center runs a competitive master-PhD program providing opportunities for talented master students to complete a PhD (currently 4 PhD places per year).
What kind of research?
These are some examples of research questions within the master Sport Sciences:
- Talent in general and in sports: what is it, how can it be recognized and what are the conditions for optimum development?
- What influence does physical (in)activity have on a child’s motor and cognitive development?
- How can we analyse and optimize (match) performance in sports?
Student research projects within this domain are conducted within professional sports organizations such as NOC*NSF, sports federations, TNO Sport and professional sports clubs. The CHMS has also great lab facilities to conduct research.
