Project description

This project aims at the development of a predictive model for talent identification and
development, based upon the combination of anthropometry, physical performance parameters,
motor coordination, psychological characteristics, executive functions and environmental factors
in young athletes. This multidimensional approach will lead to models with predictive power that
is higher than currently available in research literature and practice.
