If your membership is accepted, you can select a subscription to one of the affiliated journals to the European Society of Biomechanics at a discount rate.
Please remember to attach your CV in PDF format, and a scan of a letter, also in PDF from your university stating you are a student, if you want the student membership.
How can I pay my membership and journal subscription fees (including online payment)?
Go to Online Payment (accessible after login). You may be asked to check and update your personal details and professional profile before you can renew your membership.

Then, select a valid credit card and fill all the information required. Do not forget to include your Card Verification Number (see help in the PayPal website).
