In the tradition of consecutive and fruitful exchanges with distinguished partners the ECSS fulfils its aim to promote a multi-national interdisciplinary sport science. Especially young up-coming scientists benefit from these scientific exchanges. In this the ECSS Young Investigators Award (YIA) plays a major role. Each year a selected group of YIA winners is sent out to present their awarded work at the ECSS exchange partner’s congresses.
