Over the years, ECSS has established a fine pool of vital partnerships within the sport science-related industry. Apart from two-way visibility, these partnerships provide a 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. ECSS very much appreciates the support from the following partners:

Platinum Partner
