It is no wonder, that Innsbruck has had the honour of hosting the Olympic Games on three occasions. In 1964 and 1976 the international élite came together for the Winter Olympics, and the 1st Youth Olympic Winter Games 2012 was a triumph of competitive sport and joyful encounters. The Winter World Masters Games, the world‘s largest winter sports festival for top athletes and amateurs over 30, were also held here in 2020. Because of Innsbruck’s history in performance under pressure, Innsbruck would be the perfect place to discuss and present the latest research and applications from European sport psychologists on this topic.
Our vision is to promote this theme with a scientific and a practice-oriented program. We will ensure to have outstanding keynote speakers and exciting symposia, workshops, individual oral and poster presentations as well as a science and an applied slam. We have already received very positive responses from our European colleagues who we asked to be part of the scientific and applied committees. We are planning to work diligently with leading national and international sport psychology associations to promote the congress.
Because of Innsbruck`s history and tradition in professional sport we also expect media and public interest in the FEPSAC congress 2024. Furthermore, we will offer – in cooperation with our local sport organizations – an attractive social and sportive program
We are convinced we will be able to offer you an outstanding program and that the FESPAC Congress 2024 in Innsbruck/Austria will offer many lasting scientific, applied and social memories for our participants
