To take research to an even higher level, the Amsterdam knowledge institutions have united as the Amsterdam Institute of Sport Science (AISS). In addition to the VU, the partners of AISS are also the VUmc, HvA, UvA, and AMC. AISS seeks close cooperation with sports organizations and the Center for Top Sport and Education Amsterdam (CTO).
AISS mainly focuses on practice-relevant research into performance improvement, exercise and health, entrepreneurship in sports, and multi- and interdisciplinary education. Internships are also coordinated from AISS. Read more on www.aiss.nl.
Staff and students also benefit from the VU's attention to sports, exercise and health. The VU is committed to a broad and affordable package of sports facilities to promote health, facilitate social interaction and support sports talents. Find out more about VU Sports Centre >
