EU CONFERENCE ON SPORT STATISTICS – Results now available!

As outlined in the last version of the EOSE E-Bulletin, a conference on Sport Statistics was organised by the European Commission in Brussels on 23 March 2011. The objective of that event was to focus on statistical and information needs in view of the development of sport as a new EU policy area, in line with Article 165 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU).

The Conference gathered relevant experts in the fields of statistics, including representatives from national statistical offices and Eurostat, and sport research, as well as representatives from sport administrations and stakeholders from the non-governmental sector.

Prof. Dr. Thierry Zintz, General Secretary of EOSE, attended the EU Conference on Sport Statistics on behalf of EOSE and made a presentation entitled “Sport and Employment in Europe: Key Achievements and Challenges. After an introduction of EOSE and the work undertaken on sport employment and training within the last 10 years, he then presented the main challenges of the sector in Europe and outlined a strong need for key stakeholders to further cooperate, to share information and to bundle resources at the EU level, as well as a need to implement National or/and Regional Observatoires of Sport and Employment (National Sector Skills Councils for Sport) for best development and recognition of the sector.

The discussions confirmed the importance of better and more comparable sport data, underlined the relevance of ongoing EU-level initiatives to further address this need and helped identify next steps towards future action in this field.
