YIA background

One of the key objectives of the European College of Sport Science (ECSS) is the promotion of junior scientists and the fostering of state‐of‐the‐art research. In this spirit the Young Investigators Awards (YIA), hosted by the annual ECSS Congresses are acknowledged international sport scientific awards. Since the inauguration of the ECSS Congresses in 1996, Mars Inc. as a founding partner of the ECSS sponsors the YIA with generous cash prices to support up‐coming junior scientists, who present outstanding scientific work at the annual ECSS congresses in both oral and poster presentations. Today the ECSS and Mars Inc. proudly look back to a history of more than 290 YIA winners from different areas of sport scientific research.
