The Erasmus+ programme offers the opportunity to implement Collaborative Partnerships in the field of sport.
The specific objectives pursued by the Erasmus+ Programme in the field of sport are to:
- tackle cross-border threats to the integrity of sport, such as doping, match fixing and violence, as well as all kinds of intolerance and discrimination;
- promote and support good governance in sport and dual careers of athletes;
- promote 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.
The Actions in the field of sport are expected to result in the development of the European dimension in sport by generating, sharing and spreading experiences and knowledge about different issues affecting sport at the European level.
Ultimately, sport projects supported through Erasmus+ should lead to increased levels of participation in sport, physical activity and voluntary activity.
- Increased knowledge and awareness regarding sport and physical activity in Programme Countries
- Increased awareness of as regards the role of sport in promoting social inclusion, equal opportunities
- and health-enhancing physical activity
- Strengthened cooperation between institutions and organisations active in the field of sport and physical activity
- Better participation of sport organisations and other relevant organisations from various Programme
- Countries in enhanced networks
- Improved sharing of good practices
Collaborative Partnerships offer the opportunity to develop, transfer and/or implement innovative practices in different areas relating to sport and physical activity between various organisations and actors in and outside sport, including in particular public authorities at local, regional, national and European levels, sport organisations, sport-related organisations and educational bodies.
Small Collaborative Partnership
Another opportunity for cooperation is to develop Small Collaborative Partnerships that allow organisations to increase their capacity and exchange good practices and ideas in different areas of sport and physical activity.
Small Collaborative Partnerships Projects aim to:
• Promote social inclusion and equal opportunities in sport
• Support the mobility of volunteers, managers and staff of non-profit sport organisations
• Promote education in and throughout sport and encourage skills development
• Protect young athletes and improve their training and competition conditions
