Irnovis Research Network

The International Research Network on Violence and Integrity in Sport (IRNOVIS) brings together the leading and most active researchers from multiple disciplines in the field of violence in sport and we are pleased to co-host a research symposium in collaboration with Safe Sport International as a pre-conference one day event.

This pre-conference event will provide a platform for delegates from around the world to share safe sport research in a safe and collaborative space.
The day will be hosted by Loughborough University London and is entitled: “Safe sport research today: Where are we at?”

Safe sport research today: Where are we at?

The day will include spotlight presentations from members of the IRNOVIS network, a panel session from researchers in the field, free communication and poster presentations from delegates, and time for networking and connecting with other safe sport researchers.

The event is open to students, early career and established researchers, in order to reflect our rich and diverse community. The symposium will offer a full in-person programme and a partial virtual programme, including:

  • Oral presentations (5 slides in 5 minutes free communication presentations)
  • Poster presentations

Event Host

The event will be held at Loughborough University London inside Here East, an inspiring innovation hub on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

We are delighted to have the Institute for Sport Business at Loughborough University London to partner with INROVIS and SSI as our Event Host. @lborolondon @LboroSportBiz
