ISBS & ISBS 2015 Student Travel Grants

Attracting the next generation of sport biomechanists in Poitiers for ISBS 2015 is a central aim for both International Society of Biomechanics (ISBS) and ISBS 2015 Conference Organisation Committee. For us, it is very important that students (undergraduates, postgraduates and PhD students) feel free to participate to this conference.
