Throughout the years ECSS has announced three exchange partnerships with sport science associations worldwide. All of them are participating to the annual congresses of the ECSS by sharing their expertise through exchange symposiums and scientific presentations. Furthermore, ECSS sends young investigators to attend and present their research at the annual meetings of the exchange partners.
