European Conference of Adapted Physical Activity.

The forthcoming EUCAPA will be in 2024 Seville (Spain). 

EUFAPA is concerned with the promotion and dissemination of research in adapted physical activity and sport science, and their practical application to the benefit of individuals across the lifespan. The various fields of professional practice include education, adaptation, inclusion, coaching, leisure, recreation, and rehabilitation. The objectives of each EUCAPA, while locally determined, must reflect the mission of EUFAPA. A European Congress of Adapted Physical Activity is an excellent vehicle to raise local awareness, to provide an outstanding setting for local professionals to interact with world leaders in adapted physical activity, and to allow the region to make an international contribution to adapted physical activity.

The European Congress of Adapted Physical Activity (EUCAPA) is a bi-annual scientific conference organized under the shield of the European Federation of Adapted Physical Activity (EUFAPA) aiming to promote, facilitate and coordinate European cooperation in research, professional preparation, provision of services and promotion of Adapted Physical Activity for people with disabilities.

The first congress was organized in Brussels, Belgium, by Professor Jean Claude de Potter, the founding father of EUFAPA, in 1986. To date (2024), it has been organized for sixteen times in twelve different European countries.
