We are a non-profit scientific organisation devoted to the promotion and dissemination of multi-and interdisciplinary research in sport and exercise science. Founded in Nice, France in 1995, we have established ourselves as the leading sport science community in Europe, with a truly international demographic.

Our membership is available on an annual basis under three categories:

  • Member
  • Student member
  • Fellow

As an ECSS member, student member or fellow you’ll have access to the latest developments and trends in sport science, congress news and activities, and you’ll belong to the largest sport science society in Europe. 

Ongoing ECSS membership is a key factor for becoming an ECSS Fellow. Visit our Fellowship page for further information. 

ECSS membership is not just about a list of benefits. ECSS membership is about supporting sport science.
