The English Institute of Sport (EIS), established in May 2002, is an organisation which provides sport science 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 English and a limited number of professional sports.
A grant funded organisation through UK Sport, Olympic and Paralympic sports are able to engage with EIS services through their World Class Programme funding from UK Sport, English sports through their Sport England funding and professional sports through their respective funding bodies.
Services are delivered from 15 EIS High Performance Centres across the country, as well as at a number of additional partner sites.
