The Peter Harrison Centre for Disability Sport have been nominated for a CALIBRE award in recognition of its international research partnerships

For the past 15 years we at the Peter Harrison Centre for Disability Sport, headed by Professor Vicky Tolfrey, have forged research collaborations with internationally respected colleagues worldwide, encouraging them to extend their research into Para Sport, where we have been working on three key areas: Rehabilitation, Physical Activity, and Paralympic Sport

Our international partnerships have developed new scientific knowledge, and created a research dissemination network spanning Europe, North America, and Asia.
