The purposeof the New Investigator Award (NIA) is to recognise new researchers in Sports Biomechanics and to encourage them to become productive members of ISBS by expanding the base of knowledge of Sports Biomechanics through study and dissemination of information. The NIA was first awarded in Prague, Czechoslovakia as part of the 8th Symposium of ISBS. Since its inception, it has been contested on an annual basis as part of the annual conference.
