Welcome note

Dear colleagues and friends

We are pleased to announce the 7th International Scientific Conference “Contemporary Kinesiology: Active Lifestyle”, which will be held from July 18–20, 2024 in organization by Faculty of Kinesiology, University of Split, Split, Croatia.  This year’s conference is of particular importance because it is part of the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the University of Split, as well as the celebration of 70 years of kinesiology in the city of Split. Although the Faculty of Kinesiology was established in 2008, making it one of the youngest components of the University of Split, the study of kinesiology in Split has a long tradition. Institutional higher education for kinesiology teachers in Split has been ongoing since the academic year 1953/1954, when the study of Physical Culture was part of the Higher Pedagogical School, or the Pedagogical Academy, and later as the Institute for Kinesiology of the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Education at the University of Split.

Faculty of Kinesiology

Faculty of Kinesiology University of Split was established on 4 July 2008 and it is the youngest constituent of the University of Split. The first dean of the Faculty of Kinesiology was Full Professor Nikola Rausavljević, PhD. The study of kinesiology has a long tradition itself. Institutional activity of the current faculty dates back to academic year 1954 when this study was a part of College of Education, Academy of Education, and later as a part of the University of Split, Faculty of Philosophy in Zadar – BOAL (Basic Organisation of the Associated Labour) Faculty of Natural and Mathematical Sciences and Education, and also as a part of the University of Split Faculty of Natural and Mathematical Sciences and Education. Endeavours of the staff from the Department of Kinesiology in the last decade, and particularly during adjustment of higher education institutions to the Bologna Process, along with the ever growing number of young scientists and with the support of professional and scientific community, resulted in establishment of the study of kinesiology as an individual constituent of the University of Split.
