Don’t miss the third annual SPRINTER Seminar

May 2019

Later this month, the third annual seminar for the Office of Sport’s innovative research partnership with the Prevention Research Collaboration’s sport and active recreation group, SPRINTER will be held at the University of Sydney’s Charles Perkins Centre, focusing on the translation of research into policy and practice.

The early findings from the evaluation of the Active Kids program will be a key feature along with showcases from ‘Her Sport Her Way’ strategy, the growing evidence base around major sporting events and the innovative use of data within the sport and recreation sector.

SPRINTER collates world-class evidence to shape policy that improves the health and wealth of individuals, families and communities through physical activity, active recreation and sport.

The seminar will also feature an interactive showcase of SPRINTER’s key research partnerships influencing practice across state sporting organisations, sport and recreation providers, parkrun and Sport Australia.

Other issues to be tackled at the seminar include a discussion of future directions on how to embed public health even more strongly in the sport and active recreation sector.

The seminar will be held on Tuesday, 28 May from 2-4.30pm at the Level 6 Seminar Room, Charles Perkins Centre, The University of Sydney. For further information and to register for the seminar, click here
