Mainz University collaborates with 3 Chinese universities in research and teaching
Date:11/11/2013

The Institute of Sports Science at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) will be collaborating with three Chinese universities in the fields of research and teaching. The agreements cover such as aspects as research projects in high-performance sports to health care courses for students. One joint project in the field of high-performance sports is planned with the Chinese Institute of High-Altitude Medical Science Research in Xining, Tibet. Teaching and learning methods are to be analyzed in cooperation with the University of Wuhan, known for the numerous Olympic medal winners in martial arts, gymnastics, and water sports it has produced. A third agreement has been signed with the Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). This will enable students studying Sports Science in Mainz to receive additional training in TCM in the form of block courses to be held in Germany and Shanghai.

"By means of these joint projects based on agreements with the individual universities, we are intentionally gaining access to new teaching and learning methods and the eastern philosophies on which they are based," said Professor Wolfgang Schllhorn of the Exercise and Movement Science section at JGU's Institute of Sports Science.

The first project in cooperation with the Chinese Institute of High-Altitude Medical Science Research will examine the question of what impact exercising at altitudes of 2,500 to 4,500 meters can have and how altitude training can be specifically used to improve performance. The project will compare athletes born and bred at such high altitudes with those born in lowland areas and examine the relevant genetic aspects. Working in collaboration with sports medicine specialists, various training scenarios will be tested within this altitude range. The specialists in exercise and movement from Mainz also intend to try out innovative procedures such as differential learning and new analytical methods.
