The International Sportmedica Congress will be organised in its 7th edition on 16th October 2021 by the Luxembourg Societies for Sports Medicine (SLMS) and Sports Physiotherapy (SLKS) together with the Luxembourg Academy of Sports Medicine, Physiotherapy and Science and its partners.

2004 La pratique sportive chez l'enfant
2008 Optimisation de l'activité physique

In 2021 the congress theme will be “New methods in sports risk assessment and performance analysis" featuring 5 international speakers. The aim is to organise a practice-oriented congress, the target audience being trainers, coaches, medical staff members, athletes, and scientists in the field. The different topics that will be treated are biomechanics, injury prevention, performance, anti-doping, and monitoring. The Sportmedica Congress will provide ample occasion to summarize existing knowledge and stimulate discussions between different stakeholders.
The congress was postponed from 2020 to the 16th of October 2021 in an effort to organise a fruitful congress, all while respecting the necessary precautions due to the ongoing pandemic situation. The congress will thus be held as Covid-Check event, where the entry is reserved exclusively for people who have been vaccinated, recovered, or tested negative (either by means of an on-site self-test or by means of a certified negative result: PCR in the last 72h or antigen test in the last 48h).
