The European College of Sports Science is an international non-profit organisation, founded in Nice (France) in 1995.  Through its promotion of science and research, paying particular attention to the interdisciplinary fields of sports science and sports medicine, celebrated at its annual Congress, ECSS has become one of the most respected platforms for Sports Science in the world.

In its dedication to ‘to lead the promotion and application of world-class, multidisciplinary science in sport and exercise’, ECSS has been at the heart of sports science research and development, helping to create productive academic and industry based networks that challenge and push the progression of new and exciting discoveries in the field of sports science.

ECSS Glasgow 2021 will be the 26th annual ECSS Congress, bringing together academics and industry representatives from over 70 countries.  With its  theme of ‘Enhancing Health, Performance and Community Sport’ focussing on three strands of Social Sciences and Humanities, Physiology and Sports Medicine, and Biomechanics and Neuromuscular, the ECSS Glasgow Congress will provide an exciting scientific offer including plenaries,  invited sessions and the prestigious Young Investigators Award.

I am enormously proud that the University of the West of Scotland will host the European College of Sports Science Conference in 2021, in partnership with our friends at the Scottish Exhibition Campus and the Glasgow Convention Bureau. UWS is dedicated to delivering top class sports research, science, coaching and development and we are very much looking forward to welcoming ECSS members and colleagues to Glasgow. With excellent transport connections and a multi award-winning Conference venue, ECSS Glasgow 2021 will offer an exciting scientific programme, not to mention the vibrant social scene which awaits you. We want you to join us, to participate, to challenge and be challenged, to make new professional connections and, of course, to have fun. Welcome to ECSS Glasgow 2021.
