Physical Activity for Health Research Centre (PAHRC)
Increasing physical activity and reducing sedentary time are major public health goals. Our vision is to conduct excellent research which is internationally recognised and locally relevant to enhance the field of physical activity for health. We seek to create an active research environment that will inform teaching (particularly the MSc in Physical Activity for Health) and knowledge exchange in related areas.
Scottish Physical Activity Research Connections (SPARC), established in 2016, is a network of physical activity researchers, policy-makers and practitioners in Scotland organised by the Physical Activity for Health Research Centre (PAHRC) at the University of Edinburgh and the Active Scotland Division at the Scottish Government.
