The research activity in the department can be roughly divided into theoretical basic research and applied research. The main purpose of the basic research is to study:

  • the significance of sports and its subsystems to our national culture, as an element of its material and spiritual resources and as a part of a world-wide international cooperation and cultural change (the social and philosophical function of sport)
  • the physical, social and economical activity and environmental conditions of the subsystems of sport and of the institutions of sport (the political, economic and administrative function of sport) and
  • the role of an individual in the field of physical culture (the social psychological and historical function of sport). The research on the social significance of sport is regarded as the strongest field of research in the department.

Applied service research is carried out primarily in separate units in the department, in Research Center of Sport and Leisure Planning. The research is financed by the customers with whom contracts related to the projects are signed.

Active Research Projects:

  • Sport tourism - reflecting post-modern society?
  • Social significance of top sport in Finland
  • Elite sport as a content of life - a comparative perspective
