ISB 50 years at ECSS

The International Society of Biomechanics goes ECSS! During this year’s conference of the European College of Sport Science (ECSS) in Sevilla (Spain), ISB will hold a special session entitled “50 years of ISB – a lifelong connection with sports”. The session will inform about why and how biomechanics are linked to sports and addresses especially young researchers with an interest in biomechanics and sport science. Once the program is finalized, more information will be launched.

more activities coming soon!
