The congress “Youth & Winter Sports” will take place in Lausanne in the heart of a unique combination of research institutions, international sport organizations and an exceptional winter sport environment.
Just before the Lausanne 2020 Youth Olympic Games, the congress will provide the opportunity for delegates to learn from and to contribute to the research focusing on Youth and Winter Sports. The congress will feature a diverse range of sessions to enable scholars, including postgraduate students, the opportunity to share their latest research. Sessions and workshops will focus on specific sports, on important topics or on professional practice. It will give opportunities for researchers, practitioners and staff from sports organisations to meet and debate.
The congress will also provide networking opportunities in order to allow delegates to develop collaborative research projects and extend international scientific knowledge.
