About NCSEM East Midlands

The NCSEM is an Olympic legacy project delivering education, research and clinical services in sport, exercise and physical activity. It aims to apply world-class expertise to policies and practice that will benefit the health and wellbeing of the nation – from everyday people at risk of ill health through to elite athletes.

NCSEM East Midlands (NCSEM-EM) is one of three regional hubs established with a £30m investment from the Department of Health, along with London and Sheffield.

NCSEM-EM has a hub and spoke structure with the hub based in a newly built, dedicated space at Loughborough University. The building has been specifically designed to bring together the capabilities of the partner universities and NHS trusts to facilitate the translation of research into education, training and clinical services.
