Sports Technology

This research undertakes high-impact inter-disciplinary collaboration involving real user cohorts. Our long-term objective is to provide new knowledge, research tools, and innovative disruptive technologies in the convergence space and intersection of computer science, health informatics, law, sport science, and epidemiology. Developing digital solutions helping to understand the healthy human being is key, and this work is organized in the “Corpore Sano Centre“.

Cohorts of elite sports athletes are important for this research.  Soccer is one of our target domains, and our current focused attention involves gender specific aspects since gender-differentiated development, conditioning, and recognition of elite soccer athletes have received relatively little attention from the international research community.

Our research contributes to the UiT “Female Football Research Centre” that intends to obtain new and fundamental insights and knowledge on highly relevant performance factors that influence sustainable development and health of female elite football athletes.

We are researching end-to-end distributed systems for quantified self purposes that meet future requirements on privacy and security. The goal is to apply insights from this research to carry out future epidemiological validation in larger population groups.
