EHF has ongoing partnerships with different universities in Europe.
In cooperation with the German Sport University Cologne the European Handball Manager programme has been established in July 2015. The part-time programme is tailor-made for current and prospective managers in handball sports organisations, with modules focusing on areas such as economics, law, communication and psychology.
Under the lead of EHF Methods Commission member Carmen Manchado, the team at the University of Alicante is involved in scientific analysis of players' tracking data at EHF EURO events, which is provided by KINEXON. The university also provides an analysis tool to the coaches of the participating teams of the men's and women's EHF EUROs since the Men's EHF EURO 2020.
The University of Las Palmas provides consultation and technical assistance services in the field of education and training, such as assisting with teaching material for referees. The partnership began in 2009.
