International Activities



Since its creation EOSE has been involved in more than 52 EU funded projects whether as a promoter or as a partner. However, EOSE is also working under other contracts and has developed other activities.

Indeed since June 2012, EOSE has embarked on project work with a number of international partners, who share an international vision to develop the skills and potential of those working to deliver aspects of sport and active leisure across the world, based on sharing good practice and learning from others. To enable it to work internationally EOSE formed a sister organisation, EOSE Services to act on its behalf which also allows EOSE to undertake bespoke consultancy work.

Here below you can find out more about EOSE’s other activities.

Research report: Benefit to sport in the UK from participation in European Union Erasmus+ funding programme

  • Promoter: Sports Think Tank
  • EOSE role: Author
  • Duration: 2016
  • Scope: United Kingdom

Following the referendum in June the concept of Brexit and what it could mean to the UK has been much debated. As we move towards the triggering of Article 50 and kick starting Brexit negotiations, it is important that the UK sport sector has a clear picture of the level of funding it receives from the EU and can seek to retain that level of funding, either through continued participation in EU programmes or through equivalent funding at the national level.

Developed by EOSE the document reports on Erasmus+ funding for UK sport organisations. Erasmus+ is the European Union programme for education, training, youth and sport, worth €14.7 billion over seven years from 2014 – 2020. The report lists various projects and the funding attached to them.
