Preserving and enhancing human motor functioning is a modern society’s strategic aim: governments are concerned with the improvement of human health & wellbeing and with the achievement of personalised healthcare, prevention and early diagnosis, healthy aging, sustainability of chronic diseases. In the last decades, science and technology have played a remarkable role in pursuing this goal; however, the knowledge of human motor functioning and of the effects of related medical interventions is still inadequate.
 
Efforts must be made to strengthen our multi-scale understanding of the human locomotor system’s structure and functioning and to develop scientific methodologies, which can be easily implemented into professional practice. It is thus necessary to integrate the cultural heritage of old and on-going research programs with the development of an innovative scientific approach.
 
In order to solve the above-described problems, this trans-domain inter-university Centre was founded, which, focusing on human movement sciences, could connect researchers to professional associations (medical, ergonomic and sport companies), service providers, policy makers, and industry.
