European partner universities paid a visit to the Hungarian University of Sports Science

During the autumn semester, Hungarian University of Sports Science welcomed several visitors from its European partners.

Between 1 and 9 October 2023, within the framework of the Erasmus+ KA131 programme, the Hungarian University of Sports Science (HUSS) welcomed Axel Binnenbruck from the Faculty of Sports Science of the Münster University. The German guest lecturer was received by Vice-Rector for General Affairs, Dr Csaba Ökrös. 

The purpose of the visit was to continue the existing professional relationship between the two specialists in the form of a new research topic and future joint publication, and to discuss possible new areas of cooperation between the two universities. During his stay, our guest gained an insight into the methodology of teaching sports games at HUSS, participated in workshops and held classes for the students of our university.

Also within the framework of the incoming Erasmus+ staff mobility programme, Maria Lipko-Kowalska, a fitness and recreation specialist from the Józef Piłsudski University of Physical Education in Warsaw visited HUSS. She was received by Dr Gyöngyvér Lacza, Associate Professor of the Department of Recreation, with whom she discussed the recreation education of the two universities and the development of the Healthy Campus, and she also visited the Centre for Sports Nutrition, where Dr Margita Szilágyi-Utczás, Virág Jenes-Kis and Flóra Szakszon showed her the laboratory and its equipment.
