Inge Werner was born in 1959 in Innsbruck (married, three children). She finished teacher training studies in Physical Education and Mathematics in 1983. From 1980 till 1993 she worked half time as assistant, since 1993 full time at the institute of Sport Science in Innsbruck being assistant professor. In 1992 she finished her PHD studies in the field of movement co-ordination and fatigue. In autumn 2017 she stayed in Los Angeles for a sabbatical with Prof. Francisco Valero-Cuevas in the Brain-Body Dynamics Laboratory at USC.

From 2001 to 2017 she was responsible of all study-programs (or parts) at the institute, 2013 to 2017 she was Dean of Studies of the Faculty of Psychology and Sport Science. She is a board member of the Austrian Association of Sport Science.

Her sports background is apparatus gymnastics. Competition experiences in volleyball, table tennis or track and field in youth times help to apply theoretical knowledge into the sports field. Her actual interests lie in leisure time sports like mountain hiking, ski touring, biking and sports climbing. She holds a trainer diploma in apparatus gymnastics, over some years a national judge diploma and owns an additional qualification in Motopädagogik (working with children suffering from developmental disorders).

Motor Control and Motor Learning
Analyses of sport related movement techniques and motor control aspects (sports climbing specific holds and finger force sharing, balance and high altitude, sensory motor control in gliding on cross country skis, movement instructions), using principal component analysis for movement analysis.

Furthermore: Sure footedness and foot target accuracy in mountain hiking; factors affecting stepping accuracy (in context of accident prevention in mountain hiking esp. stumbling and slipping); movement variability.
