What is it for?
Are you an organisation working in the area of sport or physical activity? Are you interested in working with European partners to share innovative ideas, promote sport or address sport-related challenges? If so then take a look at Collaborative Partnerships. The funding will allow you to work with like-minded organisations to exchange new practices in areas of common interest, develop new approaches and network with key stakeholders.
What does it involve?
Collaborative Partnerships support projects which:
- 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 sportspeople.
- 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.
Some 500 Collaborative Partnership projects involving around 2,500 partners are expected to be funded between 2014 and 2020.
