“PLAY is the highest form of research” Albert Einstein.
As academics, we are constantly challenged by the need to secure research funding, undertake research and publish in credible journals. From this new knowledge becomes the basis for teaching, particularly in a research led Institution like the University of Stirling.
However research in sport is only meaningful if it contributes to the advancement of sport. Whether this is by improving nutritional ideas, training programs, testing regimes or management strategies, the research we do needs to contribute to the advancement of sport and its delivery.
To that end, we need your ideas. What are the burning questions that you ask, time and time again when it comes to sport? Why are some athletes better than others? Why after spending a lot of money do we find ourselves worse off than before.
Help us to find the right questions and we can help you find the right answers.
