Titleimage: Institute of Sport Science

The Institute of Sport Science is part of the Faculty of Human Sciences at the University of Bern, along with the institutes of Education and Psychology. The Institute of Sport Science in Berne is characterised in teaching and research by its integrative and application-oriented approach with a focus on social and behavioral science.

In research, a problem-oriented strategy is pursued that focuses on the phenomena of sport in its entire breadth and whose implementation is supported by excellent personnel and equipment research facilities. The academic exchange in sport science is also promoted by the interdisciplinary colloquium "Bernese Talks on Sport Science" ("Berner Gespräche zur Sportwissenschaft") organised by the institute.
