EU SPORT FORUM 2011 – Presentations/speeches now available

The third EU Sport Forum since the adoption of the White Paper on Sport took place in Budapest on 21-22 February 2011 and gathered around 450 participants including governmental representatives, the Olympic and sport movement, leading representatives from international and European sport federations, European and national sport umbrella organisations and other sport-related organisations. These forums can be seen as the “key platform for dialogue on sport at EU level”.

Particular attention was given to the European Commission’s Communication entitled “Developing the European Dimension in Sport“, adopted on 18 January 2011, as well as projects selected in the framework of the 2009 and 2010 Preparatory Actions in the field of sport. Pedro Velázquez Hernández, Deputy Head of the Sport Unit, noted that the Call for Proposals for the Preparatory Action 2011 in the field of Sport would probably be published in May 2011.

A delegation from the European Observatoire of Sport and Employment (EOSE) composed of the President Mr Stephen Studd, the Executive Director Mr Aurélien Favre, and the Research Manager Mr Matthias Guett was invited and attended the event in Budapest. EOSE together with the European Paralympic Committee (EPC) presented the progresses, main achievements and outcomes of the All for Sport for ALL (ASA) project. An ASA exhibition stand was also organised and gave the opportunity to discuss and exchange with Forum’s delegates on the main challenges and ideas for further development of the disability sport sector in Europe.

The Forum also included a session which was co-organised by the Hungarian Presidency and the European Commission and included a high-level panel debate between Forum participants and EU Sport Ministers. The panel discussion covered all the main areas and priorities of the Communication on “Developing the European Dimension in Sport”.
