We will present the most recent research conducted on the essential benefits of sports and physical activity in- and outside of the University context. We highlight the development of soft skills and higher employability chances as part of the educational potential of sport;

  • Improved physical and mental health and well being
  • Enhanced academic achievement
  • Social responsibility

Through expert presentations, interactive workshops and discussions, we want to provide you with clear insight in some of the most compelling evidence for the development of and investment in physical activity in the higher education context. We highlight the Norwegian example; go above and beyond to facilitate sports and physical activity. Join us in Trondheim – join the `facts`movement!



During this 2-day pre-event, the Sit & NTNU Trondheim team elaborates on their inclusive cross university approach to sport and physical activity in the context of higher education. We highlight constant development, who to convince to take it to next level and how to evolve the university sport facilities. We visit the different sport locations and venues in and around Trondheim accompanied by their key decision makers: the students.



We present to you the first outline of the programme for the Forum & Assembly in Trondheim.
