This year the European Commission's Sport Unit will work towards creating the framework for the program. The first call for proposal for the mobility for sport staff program will be published in 2022.
On behalf of ENGSO, Ms Massini highlighted:

It is important to ensure the exchange between more experts and big organizations with smaller and less experienced sport organizations.
It is important that the program would be accessible to the sports clubs and organizations at the grassroots level. The program should ensure that the grassroots sports clubs are included in the consortium program to allow a balanced participation between international, big organizations and grassroots sport organizations.
It would be important to ensure capacity building program for sports clubs to access and manage the program and apply for it having easy rules and easy formal procedures.
