Meet our partners I.


Meet our partner from Novi Sad; Serbia!

Center for Health, Exercise and Sport Sciences (CHESS) is an educational and research non-governmental organization that focuses on creating a society of knowledge through supreme science and research training structured around core principles of Excellence, Integrity, Innovation and Inquisitiveness. The main aspects of our work are (1) research and evaluation in the discipline of health and exercise, (2) education and professional development of the premier quality in the field, and (3) dissemination and application of knowledge for healthy active lifestyles. Our mission is to establish a self-sustaining, continuing education and research program to illuminate the population of all ages about healthy active lifestyles, with the ultimate goal of making the Serbia population more fit and healthy in a rapidly changing world.

In 2010, a small group of University professors, physicians, fitness experts, physical educators and allied health professionals decided to found the Center for Health, Exercise and Sport Sciences (CHESS) – a unique organization that recognizes that health problems were closely associated with lifestyle choices, especially poor nutrition and lack of exercise. Since then, CHESS members and officials evaluated and promoted healthier lifestyles for diverse populations in Serbia and abroad, through educational, scientific and training activities. In the past years, we undertook dozen projects supported by public and private stakeholders, national and international funding bodies, from Serbian Ministry of Education and Science and the Ministry of Youth and Sport, through World Health Organization, World-Anti Doping Agency and US National Strength and Conditioning Association, to industry. Striving for excellence in the promotion of exercise-driven healthier lifestyles, today CHESS continues to organize educational seminars and portals, conduct research studies, and produce guidelines and initiatives for better health. Our main aims areto better understand the relations between exercise, nutrition and health, and to motivate people of all ages to adopt a healthy life style that includes scientifically proven regular physical activity and optimal nutrition.

CLIMATEMED Project first presentation in Novi Sad!


Our partners at Center for Health, Exercise and Sport Sciences held their introduction of our project in Novi Sad for ther Faculty of Medicine.

On December 12 th 2022, at the Cultural center of Novi Sad “Svilara”, the Center for Health, Exercise and Sport Sciences experts held the first presentation of the Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership project "Developing new curriculum outlines and learning materials on climate change’s health impacts for medical schools - CLIMATEMED", which unites professionals from Hungary, Ireland, Romania, and Serbia. The educational material that will be developed during the project will be offered in the future as curricula, intended primarily for medical faculty students, as well as educational seminars intended for doctors, and experts in the field of public health, sports, geography,  urbanism and other related fields.

The goal of the presentation was to raise awareness of the importance of climate change and its impact on health, and to draw the public's attention to the increasingly frequent health consequences of climate change. The CHESS project team presented in detail future activities to the members of the Student Associations of the Faculty of Medicine, Faculty of Science and Faculty of Sport and Physical Education University of Novi Sad, and the members of the Student Parliament, as well as the members of the press.

Our first transnational meeting at Balaton


The first transnational project meeting of the CLIMATEMED project was held September 13-14th  2022, where all our partners met from all around Europe.

The meeting took place at Lake Balaton, in Balatonakarattya, where all of our partners and collaborators have met to share and evaluate their work in the project and to move forward with the tasks of the next phase!

We concluded our literature research, and successfully moved on to plan the WordCafé  workshops and the questionnaires we will distribute among the European Medical Schools, to get a better picture about the knowledge of the medical students, academic staff and medical doctors in regards of the health consequences caused by  climate change.


We launched our Erasmus+ Project: CLIMATEMED


We aim to support the educational capacities regarding the health effects of climate change by developing education materials and to strengthen climate awareness.

Why is it important? According to the WHO, health effects of climate change between 2030 and 2050 could raise the yearly death toll by 250 thousand. The reason for this are not just the increase of newly appearing contagious and non-contagious diseases but also death caused by extreme changes in weather.

Our goal is not only to develop learning materials for medical students but also training materials for academic staff of medical schools and postgarduate learning courses too!

The kick-off meeting of the CLIMATEMED project was organised  in Pécs (Hungary), in the conference room of the University of Pécs Medical School, where all the organisations participating in the consortium were represented.
