Sheffield Hallam



With one of the most sophisticated Academies of Sports and Physical Activity in the UK, Sheffield Hallam continually has significant collaborations with global sports governing bodies such as FIFA, the RFU and British Swimming, as well as many of Team GB’s top athletes.

Professor Steve Haake and his team, headed by Dr David Broom, have undertaken research projects that have harnessed cutting edge innovation and helped modernise sport as we know it today.

In 2019, Sheffield Hallam opened their state of the art Faculty of Health and Wellbeing, which will take many years of their sport and physical activity knowledge and focus it in Health and Wellbeing. The new faculty will set a new precedent in the field of wellness innovation research.
