This not-for-profit, Switzerland based academy is located in Lausanne and is spearheaded by Dr Claude Stricker.

The AISTS Academy focuses on three vital pillars to ensure its success: education applied research and network in the sports environment. Each pillar is dependent on the previous this is because education is the foundation to success, it allows students to broaden their knowledge on topics they care about. Applied research allows students to apply the knowledge they have learnt to real life situations and master their art of trade and then go out in the world and network with organisations, investors and stakeholders.
