SFR CRISCRIS (Confederation for Interdisciplinary Research in Sport) is a federation of recognized university research units of “Région Auvergne Rhône Alpes” in order to promote and support interdisciplinary research in life sciences and humanities in the field of sport and health. The research units members of CRIS are, for humanities ACTE (Clermont-Ferrand) and L_VIS (Lyon), for life sciences (LIBM, Saint Etienne, Lyon and Savoie), AME2P (Clermont-Ferrand) and TAPE (Saint Etienne).
MissionThe mission of CRIS is to promote and support interdisciplinary research in life sciences and humanities in the field of sport and health by: 1) Collaborating with European sport and health organizations (e.g. IOC in Lausanne), innovation (e.g. EPSI) and academic (e.g. ECSS) networks; 2) Responding to regional, national and European calls focusing on interdisciplinary approaches that could be applied in the field of sport and health. 3) Participating to strategic innovation domain “Sport, montagne et tourisme” of “Région Auvergne Rhône Alpes”.
In order to promote and get better recognition of interdisciplinary (life sciences – humanities) research and development works, 4 research laboratories of “Région Rhône Alpes” in sport and health domain, proposed in 2015 to the French commission in charge of evaluation of universities to create a new research federation. After evaluation, the SFR CRIS (FED 4272) was created the 1st January 2016. When the larger “Région Auvergne Rhône Alpes” was created, two research laboratories of Clermont-Ferrand joined the federation in 2016.
