A public lecture is also planned. The conference, which is co-organized by Centrale Nantes and CREPS Pays de la Loire (Center for Resources, Expertise and Sports Performance) partner of the Scientific Challenge Specialisation, with the support of the Research and Sport Network in the Pays de la Loire, will be focused on both science and sports performance: "Scientific activities of the French Ski Federation"with Nicolas Coulmy, Director of the sports and scientific department of the French Ski Federation.
Nicolas Coulmy will explain how his department works and give examples of hands-on studies carried out in different areas:

  • aerodynamics
  • motion analysis
  • motor control
  • perceptual and physical signatures
  • physiology
  • mental skills
The French Ski Federation is one of the most structured sports federations in terms of research and development for performance assistance. The sports and scientific department (DSS) of the FFS is a separate entity, led by Nicolas Coulmy. This structure is innovative. It promotes the transmission of sports and scientific knowledge by acting as an interface between the sports sector and the scientific sector. See a brief presentation:
