English Institute of Sport      

The English Institute of Sport is a strategic partner of BASES. Both BASES and EIS are committed to raising standards in the application of sport and exercise science and promoting evidence-based practice in the high performance sport sector in the UK.

What is the English Institute of Sport?

The English Institute of Sport (EIS) was established in May 2002 and provides sport science, technology and medical support services to elite athletes through a nationwide network of expertise and facilities, working with Olympic and Paralympic summer and winter sports, as well as a number of professional sports. Services are delivered from nine EIS High Performance Centres across the country, as well as at a number of additional partner sites.


Raising standards

As part of its commitment to raising standards and promoting excellence in applied sports science, the EIS now requires all of its sport and exercise science practitioners that provide physiology and biomechanics support to be BASES Accredited Sport and Exercise Scientists.
