clean sport alliance

The Clean Sport Alliance is built on the cumulated strength and complementary portfolios of anti-doping researchers, representatives of anti-doping organisations and athletes. 

The goal of this pan-European initiative is to bring contemporary thinkers and practicioners together to foster high quality doping research and evidence-informed doping prevention.

The Clean Sport Alliance recognises and works with the complexity of the doping problem and prioritises collaboration and co-ordination in moving anti-doping policy and practice forward.
