Olomouc to have new centre for human movement research

Palacký University in Olomouc on Monday launched the construction of a new centre for kinanthropology research, which focuses on the research of human movement. The construction of BALUO, which stands for ‘Bases of Application Life Utilities Olomouc’, will cost some 285 million crowns, most of which will be covered from EU funds. Apart from research, the new campus should help in developing new sports and rehabilitation equipment. The BALUO centre is to be finished by 2016 and will be open to commercial research as well.
