We are a work team promoted by the Research Group “Physical-Sports Activity in Specific Populations” (AFIPE) of the Faculty of Physical Activity and Sports Sciences – INEF of the UPM.

We are currently working in collaboration with the Faculty of Physical Activity and Sports of the University of Flores (Argentina), the Bachelor’s Program in Physical Education of the University of Quindío (Colombia) and the Faculdade de Ciências Aplicadas da UNICAMP – Limeira of the Universidade Estadual from Campinas (Brazil).

Our areas of work focus on the comparative study of influencing motivational factors in the practice of physical-sports activity during adolescence and youth, as well as the implementation of intervention programs in physical and sports education.
