The Technical University of Munich organizes the 3rd CONNECT Congress on 26 and 27 March 2021 (as an online-congress due to the international COVID 19–situation).

CONNECT 21 focuses on the important role that connective tissues plays in health, well-being and disease. It sets out to explore emerging research on the role of fascia from a clinical, molecular and biomechanical standpoint, and to strengthen the exchange and dialogue between all research fields.
“The Congress aims to CONNECT scientists, sports medicine practitioners, physicians, therapists, coaches and sports administrators, to translate the latest scientific results findings into athletic and therapeutic practice”, say on behalf of the organizing institutions Prof. Dr. med. Thomas Horstmann (Conservative and Rehabilitative Orthopedics Technical University of Munich, Chefarzt Medical Park St. Hubertus, Bad Wiessee) and Dr. Robert Schleip (Fascia Research Charity Association, Fascia Research Project, Munich).
