The European Handball Federation, the Union of University Handball Teachers (UUHT) and the German Sport University Cologne are teaming up to stage the 5th EHF Scientific Conference ‘Handball for Life’ on 21-22 November 2019.

The English-language conference brings together professional and scientific experts to reflect on various aspects of professional handball, and also to further gather knowledge about medical aspects of the sport.

This year a special emphasis will be put on grassroots handball to underline that interest in sport should be initiated at a very young age and does not necessarily need to end at a higher age.

There will also be focus on topics related to coaching and related to medical treatment, injury prevention, rehabilitation, nutrition and mental treatment, relating to both indoor and beach handball.
