About NWSC

Mid Sweden University, NTNU and Nord University share a great interest in the scientific and practical aspects of winter sports performance. As a result, the three Universities have combined to present the 2019 Nordic Winter Sports Conference. The latest research and practical aspects optimizing the technique, endurance and strength aspects of performance will be highlighted for key snow sports such as alpine, cross-country, biathlon and ski-jumping.

The conference will also be an excellent opportunity for coaches, practitioners, athletes and researchers to meet and interact with one another.
