Renewed support for the Olympic Chair Henri de Baillet Latour & Jacques Rogge
The Belgian scientific fund "Baillet Latour" has renewed its support for the Olympic Chair Henri de Baillet Latour & Jacques Rogge for three more years (from 2017-2018 until 2019-2020).
The Chair was created in 2008 and is located at the Universiteit Gent and at the Université catholique de Louvain. It is currently co-held by Prof. Annick Willem (UGent) and Prof. Thierry Zintz (UCL) and focuses on academic research into ethical behaviour in sport, governance of sport governing bodies and social responsibility.
The renewed support opens up more opportunities for researchers (PhD and post-doctoral researchers) and for the further dissemination of knowledge. For more information, contact Thierry Zintz.
