Capital4Health: Capabilities for active lifestyle: An interactive knowledge-to-action research network for health promotion (2015-2021).

Sponsor: BMBF

Since early 2015, our group has been participating in Southern Germany's joint project Capital4Health, sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). The aim of the research network is to create favourable conditions for an active lifestyle in various settings (pre-school, school, work, and in the community) by improving individual skills and organizational structures. After a successful initial project phase, the research network is now being funded by the BMBF for an additional three years (2018 - 2021). The research association is under the management of Prof. Pfeifer (FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg).

Quality campaign for physical education teacher education (PETE)Hide

A project to increase the quality of physical education and teacher education (PETE) as it relates to professional and cultural diversity (2016-2023).

Since early 2016, our group has been participating in the research project "Quality campaign for PETE", sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). In this project, experts from 15 subject areas at the University of Bayreuth involved in PETE are working on an overall concept on the topic of "professional and cultural diversity in schools and universities" in order to increase the quality and attractiveness of PETE. Within the project, the Chair in Social & Health Sciences in Sport group focuses on cultural diversity in PETE.

Smart MovingHide

Increasing physical activity and reducing sedentary behavior on campus among students

The project is running as a pilot project at two Bavarian universities, the University of Bayreuth (13,000 students) and the University of Regensburg (21,500 students), in 2018 and 2019. The two universities have common features, but also certain differences. One cooperative planning group per university will be introduced, and there will be an information event and other communication measures for a competition inviting ideas to raise student awareness on the topic. Part of the evaluation addresses the extent to which mobility-enhancing measures can be implemented at a higher education institution with/without an accompanying approach to a healthy higher education institution.

Project board: Prof. Dr. Susanne Tittlbach, Prof. Dr. Claas Christian Germelmann, Dr. Sascha Hoffmann

Health Management at the UniversityHide

Since 2014, the research project "Prevention of work-related health hazards and introduction of a university health management system at the University of Bayreuth" has been carried out in cooperation with Techniker Krankenkasse in order to introduce a health management system at the University of Bayreuth. The development of the University of Bayreuth into a health-promoting university will be planned, implemented, and evaluated in coordination with the Healthy University Working Group, founded in 2013. Framework conditions are created and processes are initiated that are designed to have a positive effect on the health and well-being of all employees and students.
