Identifying Sport Management Research Strategies

The Australian Sports Commission (ASC) and the Australian Sport Research Network (ASRN) are co-hosting a two-day workshop at the Australian Institute of Sport this week (Monday and Tuesday).

The workshop seeks to identify sport management research strategies and has two explicit objectives:

Day 1 To seek a consensus on sport industry research strategies in the domain of sport management.

Day 2 To seek a consensus on how to address sport management research priorities.

The conference was opened by the ASC CEO, Simon Hollingsworth. Allan Hahn welcomed delegates on behalf of the ASRN.

Thereafter Michael Sparks, Paul Fairweather and Alun Breward provided background briefings.

Michael discussed the potential of an integrated, holistic view in sport management research.

Paul discussed research evidence from the ASC-CSIRO Future of Sport project.

Alan reported on the national research policy environment.

To date three presentations have been made available for open sharing:





  1. Keith, what were the follow-up actions following from the 2012 workshop? Any meetings in 2013 and beyond?

    • Hello, Terry

      I apologise that i was not involved in any subsequent discussions. I am unaware of any follow up.


      • Thanks Keith- sorry to hear that. I trust there will be more strategic activities to come for the promotion of research activity in sport management.
