Commissioner Vassiliou to meet Jacques Rogge, President of Olympic movement
Androulla Vassiliou, the Commissioner responsible for sport, will hold talks with the President of the International Olympic Committee, Jacques Rogge, on Monday (10 June).
The meeting is part of the Commission's 'structured dialogue' with the sports movement, which aims to increase cooperation in areas such as the fight against doping and match-fixing, as well as promoting joint efforts to encourage athletes to continue their education alongside their sporting careers. They will also discuss priorities for the future EU Work Plan for Sport and Erasmus for All, the new programme for education, training, youth and sport, which will fund initiatives at the grassroots level. The Commissioner will also address other topical issues, such as a possible future EU Week of Sport. To find out more: DG Education and Culture, Commissioner Vassiliou's website, Twitter @VassiliouEU.
