With ECSS Bruges 2012 ahead, another Young Investigators Award (YIA) will attract Europe's young upcoming sport scientists.

In total 347 YIA applications were received and are currently under review. A jury consisting of the ECSS Scientific Board and ECSS Scientific Committee reviews and grants the awards based upon an oral and poster presentation for the top ten presentations respectively.

The ECSS together with Mars Incorporated, as ECSS founding partner and YIA sponsor, look forward to state-of-the-art research, ranging from Physiology and Sports Medicine, Biomechanics and Neuromuscular to Social Sciences and Humanities oral and poster presentations.

The award has functioned for previous YIA winners as a starting point of their scientific career. Please note the YIA video documentary 'promoting scientific excellence' to be viewed here.
