BASES logoWelcome to the BASES Student Conference 2021. 

The conference will now be a hybrid/online event. Delegates will be able to present their research, enjoy lectures and panel discussions from world-leading experts, and observe practical demonstrations from the comfort of their own home (or wherever they happen to be). There will be some content transmitted live from our stunning teaching building The Spark, as well as the new Solent Sports Complex, and our BASES-accredited sport science laboratories.
