The IBU Research Grant Working Group, consisting of well-known experts in sport science and winter sports, will review the applications a make a proposal to the IBU Executive Board which will decide about the projects in June 2023.
The results of the research projects will be shared with all IBU member associations and published in the IBU channels. Further information on the IBU Research Grant Programme can be found here: IBU Research Grant - biathlonworld.com
