Sport innovation: register for the CHAMP project final conference

Updated: Oct 14, 2021

For the sport movement, the past two years have been a challenge. The pandemic closed doors of the sport clubs and sport facilities - but the closures also gave us the opportunity to innovate, and finalise the, Erasmus+ co-founded, CHAMP project and its most important outcome - the free online course “How to manage a modern sport club”.

Therefore we would like to invite you to join us at the CHAMP project final conference, which will be held in Vilnius, Lithuania, on 21 October 2021.

REGISTER for the conference

The conference will be part of the European Sport Platform 2021. If you wish to attend the CHAMP final conference only, choose Day 1 - CHAMP under "the days you will attend".

The conference is free of charge.

During the conference we will address and discuss challenges and opportunities in relation to sport, innovation and digitalization. We will also open up for discussions and exchange ideas on how to use the outcomes of the CHAMP project as a way forward for the sports movement!

The deadline for registration is 26 September 2021.
