What is the Institute?

The Esports Institute of Education and Technology is the first digital research center dedicated to the practice of esports in an academic setting. We are committed to the continuous improvement of methods, practices and structures for esports enthusiasts and professionals alike. Acting as a living ecosystem for industry specialists, the Institute offers highly adaptable services such as training programs and professional support for coaches, educators and esports-athletes worldwide.

We are a team of experts coming from diverse professional and academic backgrounds with more than 40 years of cumulative experience in the esports sphere. Our past accomplishments include the creation and management of multiple NPOs, including an esports federation, and successful professional teams or esports leagues.

We have dedicated the past 4 years to the development of several Esports curriculums through which we have sought to provide an environment in which gamers can improve in their field, but also grow as individuals. We are notably responsible for the first esports-study program in Canada.
