Within the framework of the 20th ENGSO General Assembly, the ENGSO EU Seminar took place on the 25th of May 2012 with the aim to present the updates on EU Sport Policy matters and EU Funding Possibilities.
The Seminar was opened by Poul Broberg, the new Chair of the ENGSO EU Working Group. After he welcomed the participants, Michal Krejza, Head of the Sport Unit of the European Commission, presented the Erasmus for All Programme. This is the proposed new EU programme for education, training, youth and sport within the next Multi-annual financial framework, what is currently under negotiations for the period of 2014 and 2020. A whole chapter of the Programme was constituted for sport mainly following the themes that were tested by the Preparatory Actions in the Field of Sport. One of the ENGSO project funded by the Preparatory Actions in 2010, was the “Creating a Level Playing Field” promoting social inclusion of migrants and ethic minorities. On the ENGSO EU Seminar the CLPF Project was presented by Heidi Pekkola, Policy and Communication Officer of ENGSO.

EU Funding Possibilities was another major topic of the Seminar, within the scope of which Michael Trinker, the former Executive Committee member of ENGSO, and Agnes Kainz, Policy Officer of ENGSO Youth, held presentations. Michael Trinker summarized the EU funding possibilities available so far. On the other hand, Agnes Kainz disclosed practical examples of the involvement in projects funded by the Sport Unit of the European Commission, since ENGSO Youth have participated in three projects funded by the Preparatory Actions in the Field of Sport.
