Travel Award

Dear Colleagues,

After a thorough assessment of all applications by the Evaluation Committee, we are pleased to announce that Dr. Paul Collings is the first winner of the Sports Travel Award 2018, and will receive 800 Swiss Francs towards his travel expenses to attend an international conference in 2018.

Dr. Paul Collings received his Ph.D. at the University of Cambridge in 2015 and is now a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Bradford Institute for Health Research. His research focuses on quantifying the levels and patterns of physical activity, sedentary time and sleep in population-based samples of adults and children, and further examines associations between movement behaviours with adiposity and cardiometabolic outcomes.

We would like to congratulate him on his excellent work and would further like to thank all applicants for their interesting and high quality contributions. We also wish to thank the Scientific Committee members for their evaluation of the candidates.

PD Dr. Eling Douwe de Bruin,

Institute of Human Movement Sciences and Sport, ETH Zürich, HIT J 32.3, Wolfgang-Pauli-Str. 27, 8093 Zürich, Switzerland
