Research information system (FIS)

The German Sport University Cologne is Germany’s only, and Europe’s largest, university in the field of sport and exercise science. All relevant sport science issues are dealt with at this unique university in Germany, shared between 21 academic institutes. Humanities, social and business disciplines are also represented here, along with life sciences. These are complemented by four affiliate institutes as well as 12 academic centres and research units.

The German Sport University utilises its excellent interdisciplinary research opportunities to ensure its position as a leader in both national and international sport and exercise science and has a unique capacity to conduct transdisciplinary research with other universities and institutions worldwide. Aware of its responsibility towards both sport and society, the university continually invests in innovation and emphasizes the growing significance of a physically active lifestyle in terms of health, social politics and economics. Fields of research cover the ethical, sociological, economic and educational aspects of sport as an integral element of society; questioning the influence of exercise or lack of exercise, training and nutrition on healthy and ill people across all age groups.

The Research Information System (Forschungs-Informations-System - FIS) of the German Sport University is a central database, which connects and summarizes all research information of the university at a glance. This way the public is offered a comprehensive picture of all of the research activities with the common emphasis “Sport and Exercise Science”: internal and external users can look up publications, research projects, academic institutions and further information in both English and German.
