Short summary
The annual Congress of the European College of Sport Science takes place 4 to 7 July 2018 in Dublin, Ireland.
Sport Science at the Cutting Edge is the chosen theme for the 2018 ECSS congress, where a high quality invited scientific programme has been put together by experts, attracting international sport scientists to present their very best work. As a multi- and interdisciplinary congress, the congress delegation is made up of sport and exercise scientists as well as sport medicine experts around the world.
ECSS aims to support the career development of young, upcoming scientists and therefore organises the ECSS Young Investigators Award (ECSS YIA) within the framework of the annual congress. This is a very prestigious award in the field of sport science and a great stepping stone in your academic career.
