Abstract:
The department of Movement and Sport Sciences of Ghent University focuses on the following research lines: kinesiology, exercise physiology and training, sport management, physical activity, fitness and health and didactics of physical education.

The marine research (research group Exercise and Environmental Physiology) focuses on the physiology and epidemiology of injury in watersports such as rowing, sailing and kitesurfing, as well as on ocean environmental effects (cold water, waves, wind, etc.) on human physiology (thermoregulatory responses) and safety at sea and on the beach (drowning, resuscitation, lifeguarding).
