IHF is one of the three research groups belonging to CVHI. IHF consists of about 30 researchers/teachers working at Halmstad University. In addition, there are a number of associated members (around 20) representing, for example, Halland Sport Association, Halmstad Municipality, Region Halland and the Development and Special Education School Authority.
The aim of the IHF-group is to promote and develop research in the areas of Sport, Health and Physical Activity.

IHF members actively collaborate with relevant institutions and researchers in Sweden, for example, in Malmö, Gävle, Örebro, Gothenburg, and Stockholm. It is rather unique that IHF collaborates with SvFF (Swedish Football Association), and also Swedish Network of Adapted Physical Activity (SNAFA).
International collaborators include colleagues from USA, Denmark, Belgium, and Latvia. IHF researchers are members of several international networks, such as European Master´s Studies in Sport and Exercise Psychology (EMSSEP), Forum of Applied Sport Psychologists (FAST), European Network of Young Specialists in Sport Psychology (ENYSSP), Nordic Network on Adapted Physical Activity (NANAFA), International Society for Humor Studies (ISHS), and International Society of Sport Psychology (ISSP).
