Universitat Oberta de Catalunya, Research groups Gender and ICT (GenTIC) and Internet Computing & Systems Optimization (ICSO) of the IN3 and FoodLab of the Studies of UOC Health Sciences


The workshop will be a free open event (registration link required) where experts, practitioners, and researchers from different disciplines can communicate their research linked to the study of the relationship between health and well-being through sports activity from a gender perspective. Sessions in the program will be presented orally. Each presenter is allocated a 15 minutes slot followed by 5 minutes questions and answers.

The main goal is to establish a network of contacts, including students, academics and professionals, that can promote the rising of common interests in research and knowledge transfer activities regarding the following topics:

(i) providing evidence on the situation of women in sports and the promotion of healthy habits through various analytical methodologies such as data science;

(ii) exploring new lines of research that contribute to a better understanding of gender inequalities in sports and physical activity, health and well-being. 

(iii) identifying good practices that inspire recommendations to reduce gender inequalities in nutrition, physical activity and sport.

(iv) describing the current situation and identifying emerging trends of the sports and health sectors using data-intensive studies;

(v) integrating a gender perspective in the approach of research analytics in sports and health.
