PRAGUE, Czech Republic – Prague won the candidacy for the 21st European Congress of Biomechanics (ESB), which will be held in 2015.
“We are very pleased to have worked with the Czech biomechanical society from the very beginning of the entire project and thus we could significantly contribute to the candidacy. After selecting PCO, which is the company CZECH-IN, the presentation of Prague took place in Lisbon and turned out very successfully,” said to obtaining the congress Director of Prague Convention Bureau Lenka Žlebková.
Several candidates were invited to the Annual Board Meeting held during the 18th Congress of the European Society of Biomechanics in Lisbon on July 1 – 4 July 2012 to present their candidacies for the organization of the 21st ESB Congress in 2015. The candidates from France (Paris) and Austria (Graz) could, unlike the Czech Republic, rely on an extensive network of researchers. However, based on a well-prepared, comprehensive and compelling presentation, the Board chose the Czech Republic and its capital as the next destination to host the meeting.
Every year, this multidisciplinary congress is attended by up to 1000 delegates, among them mostly scientists, engineers and other specialists in the field. All services associated with the organization of the congress will be provided by the company CZECH-IN.
The European Society of Biomechanics was founded at a meeting of 20 scientists from 11 countries in Brussels in 1976. Now it is the largest biomechanical company in Europe with more than 750 members. Its aim is to promote the research, disseminate knowledge and encourage progress in biomechanics.
