We collaborate with partners like the Australian Institute of Sport and national sporting organisations to address real-world problems in athlete support and high-performance sport administration through interdisciplinary research.
UCRISE research is multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary in nature as it combines experts in all facets of sport including physiology, psychology, biomechanics, strength and conditioning, coaching science, performance analysis, performance nutrition and dietetics, physiotherapy, industrial design, data and mathematical modelling and statistics, graphic and visual design, computer engineering as well as sport management, ethics, law and governance.
UCRISE uses evidence-based research to assist in preventing and managing integrity issues, including match-manipulation, anti-doping, vulnerabilities, welfare, bullying and harassment.
At the University of Canberra, we are ideally and uniquely positioned in the nation’s capital to become Australia’s leading university for sport education and research. An area where we are making an impact is through our women in sport research through engagement with our grassroots, community, and high-performance sporting networks, and through our world-renowned academic and professional staff, and industry partnership.
