One of the key objectives of the ECSS is the promotion of junior scientists and the fostering of state-of-the-art research. For this purpose the ECSS established the Young Investigators Award (YIA).

Since the inauguration of the ECSS and its first annual congress in Nice, France in 1996, the YIA is an integral part of the annual ECSS congresses. Young scientists have the opportunity of entering this prestigious competition for scientific excellence, where outstanding scientific work can be presented at the annual congress. A jury consisting of the ECSS Scientific Board and ECSS Scientific Committee grants the awards based upon an oral and mini-oral presentation for the top ten presentations respectively. Each year the YIA Cocktail reunite all former YIA winners at the annual ECSS congresses – an ECSS-based network, uniting generations of sport scientists. Today many former YIA winners are still closely connected to the ECSS and even support the ECSS in its boards and committees. The award has functioned for previous YIA winners as a starting point of their scientific career.

Being an ECSS Young Investigators Award Winner, the ECSS invites you to join the 'ECSS Young Investigators Award group' on LinkedIn. 
YIA applications that meet all requirements are welcome online, using the abstract submission process of the upcoming ECSS Congress.
