Over the years the ECSS has established a fine pool of vital partnerships within the sport science related industry. Apart from two-way visibility those partnerships provide mutual exchange on scientific research and competence.
Most ECSS activities and services provided would simply not be possible without the continuous commitment of its partners.
The ECSS very much appreciates the support of
