Interested in Erasmus+ funding? Sign up for EU Sport Infoday!
The 2020 call for proposals for the Erasmus+ programme of the European Commission is open, with €57,6 million reserved for sport projects and events – a bigger budget than ever before. We are encouraging our members, partners and other sports organisations to apply for funding and use this opportunity to develop activities, organisations and networks.
The European Commission and the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) will organise an Infoday on Erasmus+ Sport on 30 January 2020 in Brussels to inform potential applicants about the political context, future programme, simplification and funding opportunities in 2020.
The following actions within the sport chapted are funded:
Collaborative Partnerships, aimed at promoting the integrity of sport (anti-doping, fight against match fixing, protection of minors), supporting innovative approaches to implement EU principles on good governance in sport, EU strategies in the area of social inclusion and equal opportunities, encouraging participation in sport and physical activity (supporting the implementation of EU Physical Activity Guidelines, volunteering, employment in sport as well as education and training in sport), and supporting the implementation of the EU guidelines on dual careers of athletes
Small Collaborative Partnerships, aimed at encouraging social inclusion and equal opportunities in sport, promoting European traditional sports and games, supporting the mobility of volunteers, coaches, managers and staff of non-profit sport organisations and protecting athletes, especially the youngest, from health and safety hazards by improving training and competition conditions
Not for profit European sport events, granting individual organisations in charge of the preparation, organisation and follow up to a given event. The activities involved will include the organisation of training activities for athletes and volunteers in the run up to the event, opening and closing ceremonies, competitions, side activities to the sporting event (conferences, seminars), as well as the implementation of legacy activities, such as evaluations or follow up activities
The funded topics are:
Tackling cross border threats to the integrity of sport, such as doping, match fixing and violence, as well as all kinds of intolerance and discrimination
Promoting and supporting good governance in sport and dual careers of athletes
Promoting 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
