The 1st International Basketball Conference

“New Frontiers in Sports Science and Practice”

Organized by the Center for Basketball Methodology and Education

While sport science can have significant and positive impact on performance, there is still a general consensus that the transfer of sport science knowledge to coaching is poor. Given this apparent dilemma, the conference aims to investigate the “magic formula” for determining the optimal balance for using sport science in practice.
In the course of the two days of the event, attendees will dive into the most pressing subjects of the field, exploring trends, engaging in roundtable discussions, learning from the world’s most prominent basketball experts, coaches, sport scientists and finding ways to move existing research to new heights.
The conference is mentored by the EuroLeague Women winner coach Dr. László Rátgéber, PhD, habil., who pursued and excelled both in scientific field and practice.
