Over the years, ECSS has established a fine pool of vital partnerships within the sport science-related industry. Apart from two-way visibility, these partnerships provide a mutual exchange on scientific research and competence.
Most ECSS activities and services provided would simply not be possible without the continuous commitment of its partners. ECSS very much appreciates the support from the following partners:
Official ECSS Sports Performance Hydration and Nutrition Partner –GSSI
Founded in 1985, the Gatorade Sports Science Institute (GSSI) is committed to helping athletes optimise their health and performance through research and education in hydration and nutrition science. GSSI scientists study the effects of nutrition on the human body before, during and after exercise and translate this complicated science into practical applications. For nearly three decades, hundreds of amateur, elite and professional athletes have participated in testing with GSSI and in studies with university research partners around the world. GSSI’s headquarter lab in Barrington, IL, satellite laboratory at the IMG Academy and on the field testing enable GSSI to do leading research with the aim of providing athletes with recommendations to help their performance and achieve their goals.

Official ECSS Partner –Catapult
Catapult empowers elite coaches globally with scientifically-validated metrics for the advancement of athlete performance. Catapult engineers wearable technology that provides objective information behind athlete risk, readiness and return to play. The company was born out of the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) and a scientific research organisation and provides an all-encompassing solution with research-based insights into athlete management.
Official YIA Partner –EuropeanJournal of Sport Science (EJSS)
Since 2001 the European Journal of Sport Science (EJSS) has been published as the official peer-reviewed journal of the ECSS. EJSS consists of original research articles and intra-and interdisciplinary reviews of sport science research from scientists worldwide. It publishes ten issues per year, in both print and electronic formats. Ranked in both the Thomson Reuters Journal Citations Report (Impact Factor) and Medline, EJSS is a growing journal in terms of its submissions, citations, and downloads.
