Sport and outdoor recreation

The sport and outdoor recreation theme represents an emerging strength and an area where the Centre is quickly becoming recognised for novel and innovative research designed to enhance performance and safety in sport and outdoor recreation systems.

This themes research involves the application of human factors and sociotechnical systems theory, methods, and principles to understand and optimise sports systems (eg. strengthen controls around corruption and doping) and to improve injury reporting, analysis, and prevention. The Centre currently has a strategic partnership with the Sunshine Coast Lightning Netball team and are currently undertaking research to improve organisational and on-court team performance.
