BASES logoWelcome to the BASES Student Conference 2020. We have put together a programme of stimulating keynote talks and sessions from some of the industry's leading figures that we hope will provoke discussion and insight into the conference theme of Equality, Diversity and Overcoming Adversity in Sport and Exercise Science.

Most of the conference will take place in our stunning teaching building, The Spark. However, you'll also be able to visit some of our sport science laboratories in other parts of the University for our workshop sessions on day two of the conference. You will also have the opportunity to take a look at our brand new Sports Complex, opened in the Spring of 2019.

If you have any questions about the conference or the programme of events, please email us: bases2020@solent.ac.uk
