The Podium Institute aims, over the next decade, to:

  • Produce world-leading science to inspire and forge evidence-based changes in safety regulation and policy across sport, with an initial focus on youth sport.
  • Develop innovative technologies to monitor, analyse and prevent sport injury and drive their adoption.
  • Devise, validate and encourage the adoption of robust safety performance standards for sport equipment.

The intended impact of our research is increased sport participation, particularly in grassroots and youth sport, with less injury. A key part of our mission is ensuring equality of representation in research of athletes of all genders and age groups.
