The name "German Research Centre for Elite Sport Cologne" represents research, performance and sport for both adults and young talent in elite sport. Basic understanding is required in a simplified form that is orientated towards functional mechanical, metabolic and mental stimuli, which are required for building up and maintaining biological tissues and psycho-physical performance.

A specific approach is to look at very different stress qualities and quantities so that the weightlessness of space conditions and the highest intensities of performance sport can be compared with one another.

momentum was founded in 2006, with the support of the state government of North Rhine-Westphalia (sports ministry) and the NRW Sports Foundation. The German Sport University Cologne has recognised momentum as a central academic institute.
