About Henrik Brandt
Director of the Danish Institute for Sports Studies (Idan), since 2011 including Play the Game and since 2013 the Danish Institute for non-Formal Education (Videncenter for Folkeoplysning). In his capacity as a director since 2005 Henrik H. Brandt has been responsible for establishing and building an institute which is today an important knowledge and research centre in the field of Danish and international sports politics and non-formal education with a large network among media, researchers and stakeholders in the Danish and international sports sector.
We support Scotland’s community sports sector with independent research, knowledge exchanges, publications, policy/practice recommendations and international benchmarking.
We are focused on research and analysis, some commissioned directly by OSS and some catalysed through our links with academia via our University Forum.
OSS is built on our links with business and the community sports sector who, using the information and evidence generated by our thinking end, seek to engage and influence funders and policy makers.
