  • Other special features
    With five professorships, one co-opted professorship and one junior professorship (compared to other institutes), the Institute of Sport Sciences at the University of Tübingen is relatively broadly positioned and thus also offers students a wide range of expertise; teaching also benefits from the correspondingly broadly positioned - mostly application-oriented - research, as the respective research findings are directly incorporated here.
