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 achieve the necessary transition, ESPRIT brings together all relevant knowledge and experience in the field of modern sport within Erasmus University Rotterdam. ESPRIT offers a unique combination of embedded ethics within the very heart of modern sport, together with 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 embedded ethics, scientific research, academic education, and societal outreach, building on multiple expert perspectives on sport, to support a responsible systemic transition.
ESPRIT collaborates with the following schools and parties in its programme: ESL (Erasmus School of Law), ESHCC (Erasmus School of History, Culture and Communication), ESSBS (Erasmus School of Social and Behavioural Sciences), ECASE (Erasmus Center for Applied Sport Economics), ESHPM (Erasmus School of Health Policy and Management), Erasmus University Medical Center (healthcare and sport medicine), and DRIFT (Governance, Politics, Transitional Design).
