University of Pau and Pays de l’Adour (UPPA, FRANCE)

The University of Pau and Pays de l 'Adour (UPPA) is a multidisciplinary university which brings together 13,500 students and 1,500 staff spread over five distinct geographic sites (Pau, Bayonne, Anglet, Mont de de Marsan and Tarbes). The UPPA is one of the 18 best French universities with the obtaining of its I-Site label (https://e2s-uppa.eu/en/index.html). As a structure, the UPPA has a good experience in the management of European projects whether Interreg programs including POCTEFA, SUDOE, H2020 or Erasmus +. Currently 36 european projects are being developped by UPPA, including several as a project leader. Dedicated services exist for assistance with project planning and management as well as financial supervision of projects once funded. The policy of UPPA is clearly oriented toward the development of international collaborations at the European level, including with the Spanish cross-boarder universities, like University of Zaragoza. UPPA has recently applicated for a European university project (UNITA), being the project leader.

The UPPA staff in charge of this project belong to the Laboratoire Mouvement Equilibre Performance Santé (MEPS, EA 4445) and to the Sciences and Techniques of Physical and Sporting Activities (STAPS) department and is localised in the campus of Tarbes. These two structures and the researchers who constitute them are specialized in the field of physical and sports activities. Within the MEPS, these are the four researchers from the axis "Moving through physical and sporting activities" who will take part of this project. The activity of this team is centered on the study of the factors, programs and intervention techniques that enable the promotion of physical activity, thus focusing on the role of physical activity for health (for prevention purposes) among different types of population (children, adolescents, elderly and adult workers). The development of this topic has been carried out for many years in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Zaragoza. This joint work has so far led to 10 scientific publications in international indexed journals, a joint supervision thesis (Alberto Aibar, 2010-2013) as well as the obtention of the Interreg POCTEFA Capas-cité project (Center for improving and promoting physical activity for health, EFA095 / 15; https://capas-c.eu/fr/).

The University of Zaragoza campuses are located in the autonomous Community of Aragon in Spain. The original campus resides in Zaragoza, the capital of Aragon, but additional campuses were created in both Huesca and Teruel in 1985. Campus of Huesca has a number of colleges including the Polytechnic School, Faculty of Health and Sport Science, Faculty of Humanities and Education, and Faculty of Business and Public Management.

The University of Zaragoza has consolidated its position in international rankings and it is now among the top 2% of the most prestigious universities worldwide. It is one of the 10 best out of the 77 throughout Spain. We are among the highest-rated 25 best worldwide in sports science (the first in Spain), among the top 100 in chemistry (also the first in Spain) and among the best 200 in Computer Science (the fourth in Spain). The policy of UNIZAR is clearly oriented toward the development of international collaborations at the European level, including with the France cross-boarder universities, like University of Pau and Pays de l´Adour (UPPA).

The UNIZAR staff in charge of this project belong to the Faculty of Sport Sciences, the Faculty of Humanities and Education, the Department of Musical, Plastic and Corporal Expression, specifically, from the area of Corporal Expression, and to the Physical Education and Physical Activity Promotion Research Group (EFYPAF) in the campus of Huesca. These different structures and the researchers who constitute them are specialized in the field of physical Education and Physical Activity and sports activities. In particular, the members from EFYPAF research group who will take part of this project are researchers with extensive experience in the field of physical activity promotion in the school environment. Different investigations have focused on the study of the factors of influence, interventions and programs that enable the physical activity promotion especially in school population. EFYPAF has conducted different school based interventions to assess the effects of increased physical activity. We have substantial experience in implementation of physical activity in the school and an extended network with school teachers in Aragon region.

The development of this topic has been carried out for many years in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Pau and Pays de l´Adour and Univeristy of Porto. This joint work has so far led to 30 scientific publications in international indexed journals (11 journals indexed in quartile 1 (Q1) and 7 in quartile 2 (Q2)), and 23 have been indexed in other prestigious databases (Scopus, DICE, In-Recs) in the period between 2017-2019, a joint supervision thesis (Alberto Aibar, 2010-2013) as well as the obtention of the Interreg POCTEFA Capas-cité project (Center for improving and promoting physical activity for health, EFA095/15).

 

City of Tarbes (FRANCE)

Tarbes is a city in south-west of France, capital of the Hautes-Pyrénées department, in the Occitanie region. It is located on the Pyrenean axis which goes from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean, located halfway between two metropolises, Toulouse and Bordeaux.

Tarbes is at the heart of an urban area which represents approximately 116,000 inhabitants being the 6th urban area of ​​the Occitania Region. From its industrial past, it has turned to advanced industry, particularly in the aeronautics field and services.

The city has a university center integrated into the Toulouse and Pau networks and has more than 6,000 students. It is also the cornerstone of the new Tarbes Lourdes Pyrénées Agglomeration Community created on January 1, 2017 which includes 86 municipalities for 128,000 inhabitants and an area of ​​215 km², making it the 5th largest agglomeration in the Region Occitanie.

The city of Tarbes is located in a department where demography is falling very slightly and Tarbes present no exception to this trend. From a professional point of view, a large part of its inhabitants have the status of retirees with a gross annual income considered as modest (€ 23,340). The average age of these residents is 39.

With more than 140 sports clubs and 16,700 licensees and more than 42,000 inhabitants, the city of Tarbes has long been a dynamic sports city. In 2010, she was a finalist in the French Sportsiest City Challenge (category 20,000 to 100,000 inhabitants) organized by the Journal l'Equipe.

The development of sport-health has been part of the major challenges of territorial sports policy since 2016 thanks to the CAPAS-Cité project that the city of Tarbes has built in partnership with the City of Huesca, the University of Zaragoza and the University of Pau and Pays de l'Adour. This European cross-border cooperation project funded by the FEDER from 2016 to 2020 allowed the implementation of sport-health actions for the population but also training and support actions for health professionals and physical activities. The partners were thus able to benefit from the permanent support of a research group from the two universities, specialized in physical and sporting activities (including the STAPS department of the University of Pau and Pays de l'Adour). This project also enabled the creation of the “Maison Sport-Santé” which is a building dedicated to a) the assessment of the physical condition of all people (professional and non-sports athletes), b) the organization of physical activities in order to support people towards better health, better well-being and c) develop a research project based on these activities. This venue is located just beside the Marie Curie High School which will participate in the intervention part of the project as complementary participating organisation. This will be a great facilitator in all intervention and evaluation activities.

L'Université de Pau et des Pays de l'Adour (France)

Notre Laboratoire Mouvement Equilibre Performance Santé (MEPS, EA 4445) et le département Sciences et Techniques des Activités Physiques et Sportives (STAPS) sont les coordinateurs du projet. Nos chercheurs sont spécialisés dans le domaine des activités physiques et sportives. Au sein de la MEPS, ce sont les quatre chercheurs de l'axe "Bouger grâce aux activités physiques et sportives" qui prennent part à ce projet.

L'activité de cette équipe est centrée sur l'étude des facteurs, des programmes et des techniques d'intervention qui permettent la promotion de l'activité physique, se concentrant ainsi sur le rôle de l'activité physique pour la santé (à des fins de prévention) chez différents types de population (enfants, adolescents, personnes âgées et travailleurs adultes).

Le développement de ce thème est réalisé depuis de nombreuses années en collaboration avec des collègues de l'Université de Saragosse. Ce travail commun a donné lieu jusqu'à présent à 10 publications scientifiques dans des revues internationales indexées, à une thèse en cotutelle (Alberto Aibar, 2010-2013) ainsi qu'à l'obtention du projet Interreg POCTEFA Capas-cité (Centre d'amélioration et de promotion de l'activité physique pour la santé, EFA095 / 15 ; https://capas-c.eu/fr/).

Université de Saragosse (Espagne)

Avec plus de 140 clubs sportifs et 16 700 licenciés et plus de 42 000 habitants, la ville de Tarbes est depuis longtemps une ville sportive dynamique. En 2010, elle a été finaliste du Challenge de la ville la plus sportive de France (catégorie 20 000 à 100 000 habitants) organisé par le Journal l'Equipe.

Le développement du sport-santé fait partie des grands enjeux de la politique sportive territoriale depuis 2016 grâce au projet CAPAS-Cité que la ville de Tarbes a construit en partenariat avec la ville de Huesca, l'université de Saragosse et l'université de Pau et des Pays de l'Adour. Ce projet européen de coopération transfrontalière financé par le FEDER de 2016 à 2020 a permis la mise en place d'actions sport-santé pour la population mais aussi des actions de formation et d'accompagnement des professionnels de santé et des activités physiques. Les partenaires ont ainsi pu bénéficier de l'appui permanent d'un groupe de recherche des deux universités, spécialisé dans les activités physiques et sportives (dont le département STAPS de l'Université de Pau et des Pays de l'Adour). Ce projet a également permis la création de la " Maison Sport-Santé " qui est un bâtiment dédié à :

  • l'évaluation de la condition physique de toute personne (sportifs professionnels et non sportifs),
  • l'organisation d'activités physiques afin d'accompagner les personnes vers une meilleure santé, un meilleur bien-être
  • développer un projet de recherche basé sur ces activités.

La " Maison Sport-Santé " est située juste à côté du lycée Marie Curie qui participera à la partie intervention du projet en tant qu'organisation participante complémentaire. Ce sera un grand facilitateur dans toutes les activités d'intervention et d'évaluation.
