HUSS Showcases Innovations and Collaborations at Sports Diplomacy Conference

The Embassy of Hungary in Paris witnessed a convergence of minds and ideas as the Sports Diplomacy Conference kicked off last year. Among the esteemed delegates were representatives from the Hungarian University of Sports Science (HUSS), who made a significant impact with their presentations and discussions.

Led by Dr habil. Judit Kádár, Director of International Relations, the delegation from HUSS unveiled their latest initiatives aimed at fostering international cooperation and innovation in the realm of sports education. Dr Kádár's introduction of the university's new International Sports Diplomacy Postgraduate Specialisation Programme received widespread acclaim, highlighting Hungary's commitment to excellence in sports education on a global scale.

In addition to showcasing the university's offerings, the delegation also leveraged the platform to explore collaborations with other academic institutions and training programs. Through engaging presentations and active participation in B2B negotiations, HUSS sought to broaden its network and contribute to the advancement of sports diplomacy beyond its borders.

The conference also saw insightful discussions on pivotal topics such as the relocation of the World Aquatics Headquarters to Budapest and the groundbreaking Swimming Nation Programme, presented by Dániel Gyurta, IOC member and Senior Advisor to the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade. The move underscores Hungary's growing influence in the international sports arena and sets the stage for enhanced collaboration and development.

Moreover, the Hungarian delegation actively participated in roundtable discussions, including sessions on sports events organized by the home country and the introduction of Hungarian sport tech companies. These engagements provided a platform for sharing expertise and forging partnerships to drive innovation and excellence in sports diplomacy.

Dr Kádár emphasized the university's commitment to nurturing talent and fostering cross-border collaborations in sports. "Our presence at this conference reflects our dedication to advancing sports diplomacy and fostering global partnerships in pursuit of excellence".
