Erasmus + Sport
Small Collaborative Partnerships aim to:
- encourage social inclusion and equal opportunities
- promote traditional European sports and games
- support the mobility of volunteers, coaches, managers and staff of non-profit sport organisations
- protect athletes, especially young athletes, from health and safety hazards by improving training and competition conditions
- foster synergy with and between local, regional, national and international policies in sport
In a broader sense, Small Collaborative Partnerships are designed to contribute to the EU's strategies in the field of sport.
What is the opportunity?
Erasmus+ provides the opportunity for organisations to develop, transfer and implement innovative practices in the field of sport between organisations, authorities and others.
Small Collaborative Partnerships are designed to promote the creation and development of European networks in the field of sport, and can include a variety of activities, such as:
- networking among stakeholders;
- promotion, identification and sharing of good practices;
- preparation, development and implementation of educational and training modules and tools;
- raising awareness of the added value of sport and physical activity;
- promoting innovative synergies between the field of sport and the fields of health, education, training and youth;
- improving the evidence-base of sport to tackle societal and economic challenges;
- conferences, seminars, meetings, events and awareness-raising actions underpinning the aforementioned activities.
