The SHAPE Research Centre at Flinders University addresses a niche in the current landscape of Australian research.
Most of the existing activity focuses on population health and clinical sports science, but there is a lack of established research focus on sport, community health and physical education.
SHAPE adopts a multidisciplinary approach to its work and brings together researchers from a broad range of disciplines and organisations, each with a strong focus on sport, health and physical education.
