With state of the art facilities for a team of over 70 Sheffield Hallam University researchers, the AWRC works to tackle key issues such as sedentary lifestyles, rising obesity and mental health.
As a centrepiece of Sheffield’s Olympic Legacy Park, the AWRC aim to transfer learnings from elite sport and performance into the wider population through innovative technology and world-leading research. Making small improvements across a number of areas creates a bigger positive impact. Our partnership from the ground up gives us access to the new interventions that improve wellbeing in society. With this knowledge, we can elevate our solutions, as they’ll have been validated by academic research, so we know they really work and can make a healthy difference to our customers.
