We are expecting over 2.200 sport scientists to gather in Essen, Germany next year to take part in the 22nd annual Congress of the European College of Sport Science. ECSS MetropolisRuhr 2017 will be a platform for multi-diciplinary sport science to be presented in an international setting to over 70 nationalities. The congress is a celebration of sport science, covering topics from social science & humanities, biomechanics & neuromuscular, physiology & sport medicine as well as the multi- and interdiciplinary fields of sport science.

The four day triumph will be closed of by an outstanding Congress Party at Schöner Alfred in Essen. Schöner Alfred is a colorful cultural location, which attracts several urban events yearly. The location is large and combined to the night clube Delta Essen it can cover over 15.000 m2.  Please find photos on their Instagram account here.
