European Members


EOSE is a membership organisation and the activity of the structure is strongly supported, linked and based on the quality and involvement of the European Network composed of the membership of the organisation.

We could highlight several proven track record of cooperation, collaborations and collective experiences through various projects and activitbecomeamemberies where the whole membership was activated to develop e.g. research and obtain comparable data (qualitative and quantitative) at national and regional level in the areas of employment and VET in the Sport and Active Leisure sector in Europe. To illustrate that point we can take the example of the VOCASPORT project commissioned by the Sport Unit of the European Commission and lead by EOSE in 2004 or more recently the LLL-Sport project.
