Welcome to the ECSS Annual Highlights Report!

This report covers the College's main activities around our four core missions. Take a look below at the exciting work we've been doing.

What we do

Every year, ECSS works on a number of strategies to disseminate high quality, innovative science and make an impact within the sport science community.

Our annual congress is packed full of science, innovation, and opportunities to learn, connect and develop.

Our journal publishes the latest research on all aspects of sport science from authors all around the world.

Our Young Investigators Award puts the spotlight on up-and-coming young researchers and their work.

The GSSI Sports Nutrition Award brings sports nutrition and hydration into the focus at our annual congress with the aim of further developing these scientific fields.

The EJSS Best Paper Award brings the most original and significant research published in our journal to the surface.

Thank you

Our members are the heart and soul of the College and our missions are largely based around career development as well as driving the field of sport science. ECSS would like to thank everyone involved in working towards these goals. Without the support of our members, boards, committees, office team and partners, we would not collectively be able to make this contribution to sport science.

Yours in Sport Science,
