Colloquium "Bernese Talks on Sport Science"

In order to intensify the exchange in the field of sport science, the Institute of Sport Science organises an interdisciplinary colloquium at the institute, which deals especially with social science questions of exercise and sport. The colloquium is intended to

  • offer the possibility of intra-university and especially intra-faculty exchange;
  • intensify national and international exchange by inviting external speakers.

This spring semester the colloquium will take place on Mondays from 16:15-17:45. The talks will take place hybrid (digital and at the Centre for Sport and Sport Science). Further detailed information on the individual events, including the respective access to the online meeting, will be sent out as a reminder one week before each "Bernese Talk". If you have not yet received the reminder, please contact Sascha Ketelhut.
