BALUO Application Centre
The BALUO Application Centre is a science and technology park focusing on research, technology, innovative entrepreneurship and vocational training in the fields of physical activities, prevention of civilization diseases and promotion of healthy lifestyle. Together with the adjacent Centre for Research in Kinanthropology, it provides a modern background for the research projects of the Faculty of Physical Culture and their application into practice.
The Centre offers its servies to various clubs and associations for testing of athletes, as well as to clients of all ages from the public, who participate as anonymous participants in the Center's research programmes.
The BALUO Application Centre, built on the site of former military facilities used by the Soviet Army, was officially opened on November 11, 2016. Its construction was possible thanks to subsidies from the Enterprise and Innovation Operational Programme. The architectural design of the centre was awarded in 2017 as The Building of the Year of the Olomouc Region in the category of civic amenities.
