Support Programs


De Luca Foundation (DLF) solicits requests from individuals who seek financial support to advance their research investigations in the area of Motor Control, Electromyography and Human Movement Sciences.


The De Luca Foundation supports students to attend scientific conferences and present their work to the research community. These opportunities are instrumental for the personal and professional growth of young researchers into the next generation of leaders driving future research innovation.


The De Luca Foundation supports the organization of meetings that provide a forum to highlight and foster the increased interest in scientific work that bridges the fields of Motor Control and Biomechanics.

Emerging Scientist Award

The Carlo De Luca Emerging Scientist Award was established in 2011 to honor Professor Carlo J. De Luca and his pioneering contribution to the science and application of Biomechanics, in particular in the area of Electromyography. It is administered by the International Society of Biomechanics (ISB).
