Olympic studies in the world

In addition to foster Olympic education, teaching and research, The Olympic Studies Centre facilitates communication and cooperation between the IOC and the international academic community.

This worldwide community is mainly constituted by Academic Olympic Studies and Research Centres (OSRC) and researchers and professors working on academic projects related to Olympic studies. 

You will discover in this page more information about the network of OSRC and academic Olympic-related initiatives and opportunities.

If you are an university professor or researcher and want to be informed about our activities and other Olympic studies initiatives organised by universities, we invite you to join our academic network by emailing us with a brief description of your academic status and your full contact details.
