Associations, Federations and Special Interest Groups

Aware of the importance of international cooperation for the advancement of science, INSTICC works closely together with several other national and international associations and is proud to welcome them as partners in its activities or to arrange initiatives in cooperation with them.

While several forms of partnership are welcome, INSTICC places special value in "Technical Co-Sponsorships", by means of which both associations support each other from a scientific perspective for their mutual benefit. Additionally, in this case, members of partner organizations benefit from the same registration conditions as INSTICC members.

Current Institutional Partners:

International Sports Engineering Association

The International Sports Engineering Association is well into its second decade of existence. During the early years, the field of sports engineering worked hard to define itself as a recognized academic discipline as well as professional field in the sports industry. Today, the field is largely recognized as a distinct discipline of engineering as evidenced by annual international conferences, numerous regional and technical specific conferences, and four distinct journals. The International Sports Engineering Association serves the rapidly growing community of sports engineering academics and practitioners by promoting the field of sports engineering through information sharing between members, the publication of the journal Sports Engineering, the production of the biannual conference, The Engineering of Sport, and support of the biannual conference the Asia-Pacific Conference on Sports Technology. We invite you to contribute your work to our journal and conferences. The ISEA maintains two databases as a service to its membership. The first is our member database, and the second is a searchable research database of sports engineering publications. Both of these databases are very useful for research and product innovation initiatives.
