”The ukactive Research Institute generates and translates physical activity-based evidence to support, protect and inform ukactive members, and to underpin physical activity policy and delivery. This is achieved through partnership working to provide high quality and rigorous research that achieves sector, policy, and academic impact that supports the growth and development of our members within the sector.
The ukactive Research Institute’s two primary objectives are to:
1. Bridge the evidence gap between traditional laboratory based ‘exercise is medicine’ research and pragmatic real-world interventions
2. Provide up to date and actionable business intelligence insight to drive strategy and business planning
We work with a diverse range of stakeholders and partners including leisure operators, local authorities, government agencies, wearable technology and equipment suppliers, and academic institutions to conduct in-depth analysis of physical activity initiatives, collecting, collating, and translating evidence from a wide variety of data sources utilising mixed methods, and situation suitable research designs.
