Knowledge Centre for
Sport & Physical Activity
Knowledge Centre for Sport & Physical Activity Netherlands makes knowledge from science, policy and practice available and applicable for professionals. Knowledge about the importance and effects of sport and physical activity, about what works and what doesn’t. We also advise and support professionals with complex issues and the realization of their own work goals.
We cooperate with partners in Europe in several EU-funded projects. By cooperating with partners on global or European projects, we aim to strengthen and deepen our knowledge. On international level, we cooperate on a bilateral basis with organisations.
We believe that our expertise can help improve the quality and effectiveness of sport and physical activity, and therefore contribute to a more vital society. A society in which people are able to take part in sports and other physical activity in a proper, safe and enjoyable way, while also having fun.
Sport is front of mind in the Netherlands. It is a sporting and active country. We have a large number of local sport clubs run by involved volunteers. Football, swimming and tennis are popular amongst many.
