Research at likes

Research of LIKES Research Centre for Physical Activity and Health provides scientific information in order to enhance physical activity.

  • We identify the determinants of physical activity and sedentary behavior, and provide solutions to increase physical activity and decrease sedentary behavior.
  • We evaluate the effectiveness of physical activity interventions in different populations, especially among physically inactive children and adults.
  • We determine the effects of physical activity and sedentary behavior on health and well-being at different phases of life.
