Research and Development

The UKK Institute’s research and development projects generate information on the health benefits and promotion of physical activity. The strategy that we are putting into action is called Program for health-enhancing physical activity.

The strategy includes four main fields of research:

  1. Monitoring the physical activity, sedentary behaviour and fitness of the population
  2. Reducing the amount of time spent sitting
  3. Safety of physical activity
  4. Physical activity as a medicine

The research projects of each main field are listed on their own pages.


The UKK Institute publications since 2009 are displayed in the directory of publications.
