Call for Participants | “The integrative role of sport – what can research contribute?” | PhD course at the Department of Nutrition, Exercise and Sports, University of Copenhagen



The aim of the course is to provide PhD students with more in depth knowledge about research on how sport can promote integration (e.g. amongst migrants, older adults, disabled individuals and in terms of gender). Furthermore, the participants will get more practical experience on how to prepare manuscripts for publication and will learn about what editors are looking for in the manuscript submission process. Students will also have the opportunity to network with international students and experts. The course provides a space to exchange ideas and knowledge about research methods related to the course topic. The course will enable communication, networking and cooperation among the students and the experts.
