CIDEFESCentro de Investigação em Desporto, Educação Física, Exercício e Saúde.

The CIDEFES is a newly created research center from the Faculdade de Educação Física e Desporto, of the Lusophone University.

Over twenty researchers aim at developing interdisciplinary studies focusing on Sport, Physical Education, Exercise, and Health behaviors.

Behavior is our common language; hence CIDEFES members contribute to studying behavior from different perspectives – Sport, Physical Education, or Exercise and Health – creating an innovative and integrative research effort.
