Pilot projects and preparatory actions: first results announced

Created on Monday, 12 Oct 2020 10:22:48

Pilot Projects and Preparatory Actions (PP/PA) present an additional opportunity for sport organisation to apply for EU funding to co-finance their projects. They are managed directly by the European Commission (not by the Executive Agency) and deal with topics or ways of working, which are not directly supported by the Erasmus+ Sport Programme. Proposed by the European Parliament, the raison d’etre of PP/PA is to serve as a “laboratory” or “test” for new actions, which, upon successful evaluation, may become part of regular EU funding programmes afterwards. 

This year, the European Commission published four calls: 

·         Grassroots sport programmes and infrastructure innovation;

·         Monitoring and coaching, through sports, of youngsters at risk of radicalisation;

·         Exchanges and mobility in sport;

·         Sport as a tool for integration and social inclusion of refugees.

The results of the Mobility call were published in the first half of September with 10 selected projects, including the “Empowering next generation of female coaches and referees” of FIBA Europe, the European governing body for basketball and partner of the EOC EU Office. 

The results of the other calls are expected to be revealed at the beginning of October 2020.
