Insigneo attends international biomechanics conferences

 

It is great to see Insigneo’s work being presented by our researchers at big international biomechanics conferences this year. They attended the 23rd Congress of the European Society of Biomechanics which took place 2 – 5 July 2017 in Seville.

During this event, our Director of Training, Dr. Gwendolen Reilly was honoured for her contribution to the European Society of Biomechanics with a plaque recognizing her tenure as president from 2014-2016.

This was followed by the XXVI Congress of the International Society of Biomechanics which took place 23 – 27 July in Brisbane.

Professor Damien Lacroix, Director of Operations, said, “The congress was a success in presenting the latest research in biomechanics performed within the Institute. The quality of the presentations combined with the large number of speakers from Insigneo is a testimony of the excellent science that our members are generating. I look forward to see more progress next year at the World Congress of Biomechanics where a large representation of Insigneo will also attend.”

Our researchers also found the conferences a very valuable experience, Andre Castro, Research Associate, said “The Congress of the European Society of Biomechanics is always a good opportunity to share our work and to get updated on what other groups in Biomechanics are working on, not just in Europe, but also worldwide. INSIGNEO representation was once again very significant, and the feedback received was excellent.”

Maria Costa, PhD student, commented, “It is always a great opportunity being at the ESB congress where we have the chance of having big names in biomechanics discussing our work. It is also a good time for networking with other researchers in both formal and informal occasions. In particular, this year the good weather and food made it even more special.”
