FMH - Faculdade de Motricidade Humana
Página principal da comunidade
The Faculty of Human Kinetics (FMH) is the oldest sports and physical education faculty in Portugal. It became part of the Technical University of Lisbon in 1975. It is nowadays the fruit of its long historical route, marked by successive reformulations of its objectives and by its adaptation to society's needs, as these were interpreted by the institutions that preceded it : the National Institute of Physical Education (INEF) from 1940 to 1975 and the Higher Institute of Physical Education (ISEF) up to 1989.
Originally an institution focused on physical education in schools, with a strong emphasis on pedagogy, the Faculty is nowadays open to a wider range of study areas of interest to different sectors of society - the education, sports, health, industry, and the arts systems - with which it cooperates in a lively and fruitful way.
