Join Us !

The Chair aims to bring together a number actors:

- Researchers
You can participate in the Chair individually or with a team.
If you have already worked on the issue of doping or on public policy, we would be happy to discuss and share our work experience with you.

• If you wish to address the issue of doping, we can help you with creation of research project, participate in your training (theoretical approaches, methodological approaches, etc.).
• We can consider signing conventions with your university to facilitate students and researchers exchange.
• We strive to digitally bring together a variety of works on doping and the fight against doping and public resources (parliamentary debates, blogs of anti-doping activists, etc.). The objective is to build a computerized research center similar to those developed by the Group of Pragmatic and Reflexive Sociology (EHESS) in the context of a sociology of environmental and health risks.

- The actors of the fight against doping
As a doping control activist or institution, you can take part in the Chair. Your experience and resources can contribute to the project and we invite you to contact us. In particular, we can assist National Anti-Doping Organizations (NADOs) in defining a National Doping Research Program (NDRP) in partnership with national academic teams, which will help to clarify certain aspects of doping practices and benefit from a feedback on the policies

We have gained significant experience in the field of doping studies in collaboration with government authorities by working in five countries:

• Brazil, in collaboration with the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (Porto Alegre) and the Brazilian Doping Control Authority (ABCD);
• Spain, in collaboration with the Polytechnic University of Madrid (UPM) and the Spanish Agency for the Protection of Health in Sport (AEPSAD);
• France, through several agreements with the services in charge of the fight against doping within the Ministry of  Sport
• Japan, in collaboration with Tsukuba University and the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT)
• Mozambique, in collaboration with the Edouardo Mondlane University (Maputo) and the new Mozambican Anti-Doping Agency (AMOCAD)

- Financial partners
We welcome any contributions from private and public partners who respect the principles of our code of ethics and consider that:
• doping seriously undermines the integrity of sports competitions;
• improving knowledge of the phenomenon of doping in sport is one of the most appropriate ways to hold back doping practices;
• it is important that national social science research programs can be accompanied with a view of bringing the best knowledge of the various factors engendering the phenomenon of doping into sport.

In any case, do not hesitate to get in contact with us.
