Sports Engineering is, in an academic sense, a new and emerging discipline often viewed with some skepticism by the 'authorities' but one only has to look through the ISEA conference proceedings, The Engineering of Sport, and ISEA Journal of Sports Engineering to realize that it is rapidly becoming a mature sub-discipline of engineering embodying much academic rigor and new technology. However, to create an environment of research funding opportunities we need to do all we can to ensure that the quality of research is kept high and that it has perceived benefits to our industrial economies as well as sports participants whether it be in the short or long term. - Professor Alan Bramley, University of Bath, UK
