As the official national training centre for the Paris Olympics and Paralympics, INSEP's current opportunities are time-bound. Nevertheless, both parties believe that there is potential for collaboration in various areas. Dr Sándor Sáfár emphasizes the importance of cooperation between the two institutions, and further negotiations will continue in the coming period.

During the visit, INSEP representatives provided a detailed insight into their institution's operations and network of relationships. There was also an opportunity to visit the sports facilities, highlighting fencing, judo, and wrestling centres as successful examples.
