Erasmus Institute for Philosophy and Economics (EIPE)
The Erasmus Institute for Philosophy and Economics (EIPE), founded in 1997, is a multidisciplinary research institute and graduate school affiliated with Erasmus University Rotterdam. The institute offers a research programme that combines the expertise of the Faculty of Humanities, the Erasmus School of Economics, the Erasmus School of History, Culture and Communication and the Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University. EIPE members of staff teach the core courses that form Erasmus School of Philosophy's Research Master in Philosophy and Economics. This English-taught Research Master is open to students with a background in economics or philosophy. Students are immersed in both sciences during the course of the degree, and so acquire the analytical and research skills required for a PhD and/or junior researcher position.

Erasmus Center for Sport Integrity & Transition
The Erasmus Center for Sport Integrity & Transition (ESPRIT) aims to accelerate the ongoing transition of modern sport, taking its current integrity crisis as momentum for transition. To do so, ESPRIT brings together all relevant knowledge and experience into modern sport within Erasmus University Rotterdam, offering a unique combination of embedded ethics within the very heart of modern sport, and scientific research to support the challenges modern sport faces. The basic objective of ESPRIT as a transdisciplinary research group, is to explore and address complex integrity issues in sport, amidst a postmodern world in transition. ESPRIT offers both embedded ethics, scientific research, academic education and societal outreach, building on multiple expert perspectives on sport, to support a responsible systemic transition.
