EOSE met with Western Balkans



EOSE met with Western Balkans

From the 21st to the 26th of May 2019, EOSE President Thierry Zintz was in Skopje (North Macedonia) to organise a full week of courses as part of the MEMOS (Executive Masters in Sport Organisation Management) programme, as MEMOS President.

This provided an ideal opportunity for EOSE to meet with sport representatives from outside the European Union. An exploratory seminar was organised on the 25th of May and gathered together EOSE and the National Olympic Committee (NOC) from four countries in the Western Balkans: Albania, Kosovo, Montenegro and North Macedonia.

The purpose of this seminar was to introduce EOSE, ecxchange realities and common challenges, and discuss potential collaboration in the future.

After an opening message and a tour de table, Thierry Zintz provided an introduction to EOSE. He presented the background, expertise, aims and network of the organisation. Following the EOSE presentation and a presentation of EU Policies in Sport, Eudcation and Employment, several topics were discussed such as realities of the sector and national challenges around skills development.

After this productive discussion, Thierry Zintz introduced the topic of EU funding and a new Call for Proposals, and discussed the potential for collaboration. It was underlined that it could be a great opportunity not only for EOSE but also for the Western Balkans NOCs to develop such a partnership for the benefit of the sector.

This was followed by an open discussion on the interest of becoming a member of EOSE and joining a broad network of organisations dedicated to sport and employment
