T2MIS partnership getting ready to issue some tickets for mobility in sport

“T2MIS” is a new EU project led by EOSE with the support of the project partners from Lithuania (MRU), Malta (SportMalta) and the Netherlands (WOS) commencing on 1st January 2017 and funded under Erasmus+ Sport. This 18 month project will propose an adapted online solution to tackle the identified barriers and create the conditions to encourage and make learning mobility a reality in sport.

On Tuesday 5 July 2017, the T2MIS project partners met in Lyon for the project’s second full partner meeting. The event, which took place in the EOSE office, gave the opportunity to the whole partnership to discuss the progress made since its launch and to move forward the implementation of this ambitious EU funded project.

The partnership is building upon the main findings from the EU Feasibility Study conducted in 2013 by EOSE, which highlighted a range of existing mobility opportunities but a perceived complexity to the process, strong demand/interest but a low level of mobility in sport, a high level of recognition of the benefits of learning mobility and yet low level of awareness of the opportunities and how to take advantage of them.

This first face-to-face full partner meeting aimed to ensure all partners were on the same level of understanding as regard the administrative and financial rules and to provide an update on the advancement of the work and a discussion to plan the next tasks and steps.

The meeting provided the opportunity to clarify the concept of learning mobility, which is different from employment mobility, and occurs “when an individual moves to a country other than his/her country of residence to get a learning experience which allows him/her to acquire new skills useful for both personal and professional development”.

Partners all agreed that “Learning mobility opportunities” must imply the development of knowledge and/or skills and linked to both personal development and increased employability.

To be considered as a good practice example and to be published as a case study as part of this project, any mobility initiative should include concrete “learning objectives” and not only be limited to a mobility abroad, for example to play sport. In addition, it was validated that transnational meetings as part of EU funded projects ARE NOT learning mobility activities. Neither are the transfer of innovation projects.


In addition, participants updated each other about the results of the desk research carried out in their country both in terms of available funding opportunities and good practices, an exercise that proved to be quite difficult yet very interesting.

One of the key components of the meeting, was also the first step in the development of the “European Mobility in Sport Online tool” which is to be produced as a key outcome of the T2MIS project. Carole Ponchon, EOSE PR and Projects Manager and Aurélien Favre, EOSE Executive Director led this brainstorming session with the participants to hear their views, ideas and expectations as regard the Online tool. This phase was crucial as the next step for the partnership should now be to develop the script for the online platform.

Finally, partners also discussed the format and objective of another key element of the project that will be the national workshops (expected December 2017 – January 2018) designed as testing/consultation phase of the beta version of the tool.

The meeting concluded with each partner having action points to be completed ahead of the next full partner meeting to take place early September 2017.
