(Berlin, 6 June 2014)


The members of the International Council of Sport Science and Physical Education (ICSSPE) come together in order to decide on the contents of the working programme and budget cycle for the upcoming biennium, based on reviews of what has been achieved in the previous term. Furthermore the member organisations will elect new office bearers for half of the seats of the Executive Board.  


Kari Keskinen, Executive Director of the Finnish Society of Sport Sciences and Chair of the ICSSPE Editorial Board states that at the Finnish Society of Sport Sciences are extremely proud that ICSSPE has authorised us to host its statutory meetings in Helsinki this June; and he stresses the cross-sectoral approach of ICSSPE when mentioning that sport scientific matters are not only of importance to sport scientists, but also to a great number of administrators and decision-makers in international governing bodies around the world.


Taking place for the 26th time the General Assembly will be held at the most prestigious Finlandia Hall, which is also the venue for the IWG 2014 Conference following the ICSSPE meetings. The ICSSPE Executive Board together with its sub-committees will have their meetings from 9 until 11 June at the Finnish Sports Museum, which is located at the historic 1952 Olympic Stadium.
