Mission: Implement the scientific method as the common language for teaching, learning and practice, vis-à-vis the development of applied science in Sport, Physical Education, and Exercise and Health.

Vision: CIDEFES is the go-to research group in behavioral Sports, Physical Education, and Exercise and Health Sciences.

  • O Exercicio faz-me comer mais... ou melhor

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

Over thirty researchers aim to develop interdisciplinary studies focusing on Sports, Physical Education, Exercise and Health behaviors.

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

The ebook about Myths vs Facts in Sports, Physical Education, and Exercise and Health is finalized.
