Erasmus+: Samenwerkingspartnerschappen sport, niet in verband met de Europese week van de sport 2015
The specific objectives pursued by the Erasmus+ Programme in the field of sport are to:
- ￼tackle cross-border threats to the integrity of sport, such as doping, match fixing and violence, as well as all
- ￼kinds of intolerance and discrimination;
- ￼promote and support good governance in sport and dual careers of athletes;
- promote voluntary activities in sport, together with social inclusion, equal opportunities and awareness of the importance of health-enhancing physical activity, through increased participation in, and equal access to ￼￼sport for all.
Collaborative Partnerships offer the opportunity to develop, transfer and/or implement innovative practices in different areas relating to sport and physical activity between various organisations and actors in and outside sport, including in particular public authorities at local, regional, national and European levels, sport organisations, sport-related organisations and educational bodies. Collaborative Partnerships are, in particular, innovative projects aimed to:
- combat doping at grassroots level, notably in recreational environments such as amateur sport and fitness;
- support prevention and raise awareness among stakeholders involved in the fight against match-fixing;
- support prevention, educational and innovative approaches to tackle violence, racism and intolerance in sport;
- support the implementation of EU policy documents in the field of sport and other relevant policy areas such as recommendations, guidelines, policy strategies, etc. (e.g. EU Physical Activity Guidelines, EU Guidelines on Dual Careers of Athletes, Principles on good governance in sport, etc.).
A particular focus will be put on projects that address grassroots sports. Collaborative Partnerships should promote the creation and development of European networks in the field of sport. The EU can thereby provide opportunities for cooperation among stakeholders, which would not have existed without EU action. Collaborative Partnerships should also foster synergy with, and between, local, regional, national and international policies to promote sport and physical activity and to address sport-related challenges. WHICH ACTIVITIES ARE SUPPORTED UNDER THIS ACTION? Erasmus+ offers a large flexibility in terms of activities that Collaborative Partnerships can implement, as long as a proposal demonstrates that these activities are the most appropriate to reach the objectives defined for the project. Collaborative Partnerships may typically cover a broad range of activities, such as for example:
- networking among key stakeholders;
- identification and sharing of good practices;
- development and implementation of training and educational modules;
- activities to increase the competences of multipliers in the field of sport and to develop monitoring and benchmarking of indicators, notably as regards the promotion of ethical behaviours and codes of conduct among sportspeople;
- awareness-raising activities on the value of sport and physical activity in relation to the personal, social and professional development of individuals;
- activities to improve the evidence-base of sport to tackle societal and economic challenges;
- activities to promote innovative synergies between the field of sport and the fields of health, education, training and youth;
- conferences, seminars, meetings, events and awareness-raising actions underpinning the aforementioned activities.
