Our Research

As a community, our expertise spans such ares as sociology, media studies, business, philosophy, game design, and a range of disciplines applied to health and sports sciences. We are continually growing our work and are particularly interested in future directions in esports, particularly around emerging technologies.

We have a particular interest in the relationship between physical activity and emerging esports, notably the integration of virtual realities and other forms of immersive experiences, which are just beginning to take off. From time to time, we’ll also publish insights from our own work, along with news about events we are running and collaboration opportunities, so stay tuned 🙂
