Description: This course will be organized for the third time as a continuation of previous symposiums on physical activity and human performance. This year’s PhD course will focus on ways to improve sport performance using various approach such as training and technology. Lectures will cover assessment of human characteristics and capabilities, achievement of optimal efficiency, improvement of performance, technologies in sports (wearables, VR, etc) and injury prevention.

This PhD course will provide the audience with recent research in sport sciences based on natural and technical science addressing various form of physical activity at work and during leisure. Internationally recognized speakers as well as speakers from Aalborg University will be invited.

Important information concerning PhD courses: We have over some time experienced problems with no-show for both project and general courses. It has now reached a point where we are forced to take action. Therefore, the Doctoral School has decided to introduce a no-show fee of DKK 3.000 for each course where the student does not show up. Cancellations are accepted no later than 2 weeks before start of the course. Registered illness is of course an acceptable reason for not showing up on those days. Furthermore, all courses open for registration approximately four months before start. This can hopefully also provide new students a chance to register for courses during the year. We look forward to your registrations.
