During my work as a Sen. Prof. at the Institute of Sport & Exercise Science at the Univ. of Münster (2013-2020) some new institutional contracts were made with mainly Asian partners (Univ. of Tsukuba, Japan; Seoul National Univ., South Korea; Tongji Univ., Shanghai, China) for common research projects and exchange of students and staff members. Furthermore, some personal contacts and collaborations exist since many years with PE and sport science departments of universities in Western (BeNeLux) and Eastern Europe (Czech Republic, Poland). Close institutional and personal ties as a part of common research studies exist between some umbrella organizations like ENGSO YOUTH , HEPA Europe, EUPEA, EFPM, CEREPS, ISCA and the Network of European Academies of Sport (NEAS). After the year 2000, strong partnerships have been developed through various Dutch-German cross-border INTERREG-studies with e.g. TNO, GSF, NISB, KVLO and “Stichting gkgk Nederland” and with further ties to university-based PE and health departments in the Netherlands. In Germany, collaborative partnerships with projects developed between the German Sport Youth (dsj), the National Olympic Academy of Willi Daume (NOA) and the Sport Youth branch of the Regional Sport Confederation of North-Rhine Westphalia (SJ LSB NRW).
