Organisation profile

Research profile

Within the broad spectrum of economic approaches, the Department of Sport Management/Sport Economics is primarily oriented towards original economic approaches. The most diverse aspects of sport under conditions of scarcity are examined within the guiding themes of health, performance, education and society. However, the focus is on two core topics: (1) Economic conditions and consequences of health-promoting physical activity, (2) Resource scarcity in sport-related NPOs: emergence, coping and consequences for sport and welfare production. While the first core topic is directly located in health economics research, the second provides direct insights for the economics of non-profit organisations.  

The department also sees itself as a service provider for non-university stakeholders. Through cooperation and consulting services, knowledge is regularly transferred to politics, the public sector, foundations, associations, societies and companies.
