International Network of Sport and Health Science (INSHS)

What does it mean "networking”? It means thematic collaboration/cooperation between partners. It also means saving money, time and having efficient communication. Further advantages for network partners are: no obligations, no paperwork, no participation fee. It provides easily access to international projects, programmes and promoting international programmes events in the most efficient way and not just only online.

International Network of Sport and Health Science (INSHS) is a perfect example for a good operating higher education thematic network.

So far INSHS had partners from 41 partner institutions from 28 countries. The number of participant institutions are growing year to year. The partners are faculties, institutes, departments of HEI’s which are involved in sport and health sciences. INSHS in partnerships with other international networks (Euro- American) as well.

The success of INSHS is marked by many thriving top level organized events, scientific projects international study programmes, student and staff activities over the last eight years.
