About the UKSDN

The UK Sport Development Network (UKSDN) has evolved from the European Sport Development Network. Established in 2008 in response to an identified need to build bridges between academia and sports industry practitioners, the Network has organised several successful conferences, published extensively in academic and professional journals and engaged in a variety of networking, advocacy and influencing work relating to sport development policy and practice in the UK.

The role of the UKSDN: Building bridges between academics and sport development practitioners.

The vision: An environment in the UK where sport and physical activity policy and practice is influenced and shaped by academic research.

What is the UKSDN? An informal network of academics and practitioners which everyone is welcome to be part of, led by a small group of people dedicated to achieving its vision.
