Institute of Exercise and Sport Sciences, University of Copenhagen

    • The Institute of Exercise and Sport Sciences (Danish: Institut for Idræt) was established in September 1997 through the consolidation of the former Laboratory for Human Physiology, the August Krogh Institute, and the Centre for Sports Research (Center for Idrætsforskning), all parts of the University of Copenhagen, and the formerly independent Danish State Institute of physical education (Danmarks Højskole for Legemsøvelser).

      The Institute is part of the University of Copenhagen's Faculty of Natural Sciences and is divided into three departments: the Department of Human Physiology, the Department of History and Social Science, and the Department of Practice, Pedagogy, and Psychology.

      The departments of the institute are located at different addresses in the university area.
