On the occasion of the 2018 Ice Hockey World Championship, which is being held in Denmark, sports researchers from AAU are organising a seminar focusing on both talent development and sports injuries.

Friday 11 May, a large number of researchers will meet at AAU CPH to share their new and useful knowledge about ice hockey.

The seminar will include physiological topics such as concussion of the brain and head injury as well as test- and evaluation systems, which can assess whether a player is physically ready to play again, for example following an injury. In addition, the seminar will look at humanistic research within the fields of sports coaching, leadership and talent development.

Researchers from several Danish universities will participate in the seminar, as well as former director of Canadian Sport Institute, Dr Stephen Norris, will pay a visit to tell about the latest trends within ice hockey.

The seminar is being held at AAU CPH in collaboration with Team Danmark, The Danish Ice Hockey Association and The International Ice Hockey Federation.
