Marijke Taks

Dr. Taks’ area of expertise is in socio-economic aspects of sport and leisure. Her grant supported research focuses particularly on impacts, outcomes and leveraging of small and medium sized sport events, and their meaning for host communities. She also studies sport consumer behavior of various groups in society. Mass participation and the “Sport for All” philosophy guide her research. 

Want to inspire a new generation of Canadian athletes? According to research, it’s all about “inspiration” – feelings of inspiration while watching an event may influence post-event sport participation. http://ow.ly/jfmr50B7QPf @Prof_Potwarka @UWRecandLeisure @smrc_crms
