The Social Science Research (SSR) Collaboration Platform, consisting of six different organisations, identified various research themes for which funding has been made available.
Although each organization of the Collaboration Platform identifies its own specific research priorities, which are outlined in this Communiqué, the overarching research themes that capture our common interests are:
Sport governance and capacity
Effectiveness of education
Equality and inclusion in sport
Athlete environment/influences on behaviour
Impact of technology on sport integrity
Details can be found in the communication below. For South African researchers, the sections under the IOC and Partnership for Clean Competition are of particular relevance.
Researchers can contact Dr. Amanda Claassen-Smithers, SAIDS Education & Research Manager, for further discussion on research questions of particular value to SAIDS and potential for collaboration – firstname.lastname@example.org
