A delegation from the University of Trieste visited the campus of Saarbrücken

Within the Transform4Europe Alliance, the kick-off meeting for a research cooperation between Saarland University (Sport Science Institute) and Trieste University (Department of Life Sciences – Psychology Unit) took place this week. A delegation from the University of Trieste – Prof. Tiziano Agostini, Prof. Mauro Murgia and Prof. Fabrizio Sors – visited the campus of Saarbrücken and the laboratories of Prof. Sabine Schaefer, Dr. Christian Kaczmarek, and MA Kai Leisge. The cooperation aims to investigate the effects of spectators on untrained fine-motor skills, and sport-specific effects of spectators (e.g., in soccer).

The meeting represented a fruitful opportunity to exchange ideas and plan a set of research activities that will be conducted jointly by the research groups of both universities in the next months.
