The English Institute of Sport (EIS) provides exceptional support services to improve sporting performance. A network of over 400 world-leading experts and practitioners in science, medicine, technology and engineering enables athletes to realise their potential and excel.

Established in 2002 and grant funded by UK Sport, the EIS works in partnership with Olympic and Paralympic sports to put people at the heart of extraordinary performance.

At the Rio 2016 Olympic & Paralympic Games, the EIS worked with 93% of the athletes and 31 of the 34 sports that won a medal for Team GB and Paralympics GB.

EIS practitioners work with coaches and Performance Directors to help improve the performance of athletes by delivering services that enable them to optimise training programmes, maximise performance in competition and improve health and availability to train.

A dedicated team of scientists also works with coaches and Performance Directors to feed the pipeline of talent into sports, and the science and sport medicine services delivered by the EIS are underpinned by world-leading technology and engineering.
