The EIS’s vision is to be the world-leading high performance institute. Our mission as the EIS is to help athletes to improve their sporting performances through the delivery of science, medicine, technology and engineering.
Striving to be the best in the world is an expensive business. However, the Institute set-up means that Olympic and Paralympic sports have access to the knowledge of experts working across sports, to share and spread the latest thinking among sports and to ensure efficiencies of delivery. Through this structure, the EIS maximises the resources it has available to it, to benefit as many Olympic and Paralympic sports as possible.
The EIS takes its obligation to provide an efficient and effective delivery to Olympic and Paralympic sports very seriously. While maintaining a requirement to be agile in an often-changing performance environment, the EIS also must deliver its annual budgets correct and accurate to the last pound, and all expenditure is regularly reviewed to ensure that it is supporting the right activities.
