Erasmus: Samenwerkingspartnerschappen sport, uitsluitend Europese week van de sport 2015
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:
- Encourage participation in sport and physical activity, especially by supporting the implementation of the European Week of Sport
- Encourage participation in sport and physical activity, especially by supporting the implementation of the EU Physical Activity Guidelines
- Promote the Dual Careers of Athletes, especially by supporting the implementation of the EU Guidelines on Dual Careers of Athletes
- Combat doping, notably in recreational environment
- Combat match-fixing, especially through the support to prevention, awareness-raising and cooperation among stakeholders
- Promote voluntary activity in sport
- Support innovative and educational approaches to contain violence and tackle racism, discrimination and intolerance in sport
- Improve good governance in sport
- Encourage social inclusion and equal opportunities in sport, especially by supporting the implementation of
EU strategies, notably the EU Gender Equality Strategy and the EU Disability Strategy.Collaborative Partnerships should promote the creation and development of European networks in the field of sport. The EU can thereby provide opportunities for strengthened 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. Within the framework of Collaborative Partnerships, Erasmus+ intends to support the testing and development of new project formats and new forms of transnational cooperation in the field of sport that are likely to inspire the development, on a larger scale of initiatives supported with national funding schemes or other European funds, such as the European Structural and Investment Funds. The Commission, through its Executive Agency, will carry out two selection rounds over the year, as follows:
- first round of the year: Collaborative Partnerships that carry out initiatives and activities during the 2015European Week of Sport and/or have a thematic link with it;
- second round of the year: any type of Collaborative Partnership, not related to the 2015 European Week of Sport.The Actions in the field of sport are expected to contribute to the implementation of the European Week of Sport, which is an initiative launched by the Commission to promote sport and physical activity in the European Union, in the light of declining participation levels.
The European Week of Sport will evolve over the years. Ultimately, it is intended to be organised following a fixed calendar (2nd week of September) with an official opening, a flagship event, and 3 to 5 focus days, each day with a different focus theme (examples: sport & schools, sport & enterprises, sport & handicap, etc.) Among other activities, the European Week of Sport will encourage the organisation of cross-border awareness raising activities. The first edition of the European Week of Sport will be organised in September 2015. At EU level, the European Week of Sport will take place from 7 to 13 September 2015. National events in the context of the European Week of Sport can take place between 7 and 30 September 2015. Further information as regards the 2015 European Week of Sport, including the focus themes, can be found onhttp://ec.europa.eu/sport/events/2015/sport-week_en.htm
