Abstract Resume

This article focuses on the nature and changes occurring in contemporary living and working environment in sports and physical education. It aims at summarizing the experience from active competitive
and training practice and research of sport and university education. Its purpose is to outline the main factors determining the changes in the working environment of the activities related to sports,
such as training, competition, learning, teaching and research and technology, with a focus on: 1) Comparison of the characteristics of the tandem athlete – coach and student - university professor;
2) Disclosure of the existing relationships, and 3) Developing the design of an extensive multidisciplinary research project related to objective standardized assessment of knowledge and professional
competence of students from the National Sports Academy, coaches in 4 sports (football, sport dancing, aerobics and golf)  and national and international categories of referees in football, sport
dancing and aerobics (n=2 626).

4.	Calculation of confidence intervals

6.	Methods of similarity and graphical visualization of data
7.	Methods of analysis, summary and modelling - heuristic based on logical methods and mathematical modelling

The data analysis shows that the results of sports training, competition, education and scientific research are strongly influenced by their specific 'boundaries' and context. The active exchange of
knowledge from one research area to another, an educational discipline to another and from one sport to another changes their context and significantly increases their effectiveness. Research findings
suggest that the modern sport strongly related to the notion of the learning space, in which individuals and teams work, learn and develop their skills.

The interdisciplinary nature of sport as a social phenomenon is one of the powerful factors for the expansion of scientific and educational space. In this way, modern science, education, training and
competition cover a growing variety of social groups and provide new areas for their career growth and social inclusion in a high-tech and network environment.
