On April 23, 2022 from 9 am until 1 pm, we host the MFYS Sport Injury Seminar on campus Etterbeek of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. The symposium will leave the floor to renound researchers and clinicians (surgeons, physiotherapists, …) which will be an added value for students, academics and colleagues on the field.

In addition, the symposium promotes a strong international program with a focus on the BENELUX with Prof. Dr. Romain Seil (Luxemburg – LIROMS) and Prof. Dr. Evert Verhagen (Netherlands – VU Amsterdam) both connected to the IOC.
