Breaking New Ground in Sport and Human Performance Research
The SHPRC is a new Research centre at the University of Limerick, dedicated to innovative, interdisciplinary research in sport and human performance.
It aims to inform national and international best practice and through the creation of national and international networks, achieve global recognition for the quality of its research outputs and graduate students.
On the 26th October 2022, the Sport and Human Performance Research Centre (SHPRC) was formally launched by Lord Sebastian Coe (President of World Athletics). Prior to the launch, Lord Coe, Pierce O'Callaghan (Head of Competition Management at World Athletics), Prof Kirsten Mey (President of the University of Limerick) and many others attended a number of Sport and Human Performance demonstrations in the Department of Physical Education and Sport Sciences where they informed about ongoing research in the SHPRC by co-directors Prof Giles Warrington and Prof Drew Harrison and the centre's theme leads.
