Around 3,000 biomechanics will head to the biomechanics' congress in 2018, which is expected to generate £4m for the local economy in Dublin.

Keynote PCO will deliver conference management services after working on the Irish committee to secure the international medical event.

The 2018 World Congress of Biomechanics will be co-hosted by the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI) and Trinity College Dublin.

Director general of the Science Foundation Ireland and chief scientific advisor to the Irish Government, Professor Mark Ferguson, said: "Dublin has a proven track record for hosting large international science gatherings and is an excellent location for the 2018 World Congress."

The 2014 World Congress of Biomechanics will take place at the John B. Hynes Veterans Memorial Convention Center in Boston, Massachusetts from 6-11 July.
