For community cohesion and social inclusion

EU Sport Forum

This European Commission-led initiative supports a yearly event – allowing representatives from public policy, EU institutional, private enterprise, educational and other experts from across the field of sport to discuss challenges, opportunities and the future of Sport in the EU.

The EU Sport Forum is the main platform for structured dialogue between the European Commission and sport stakeholders. The Forum's main objective is to take stock of progress achieved in implementing the EU agenda for sport, and to seek stakeholders’ views on current and planned/possible future activities. Collaboration takes place via high-level group discussions and panels, exploring themes such as anti-doping, corruption, discrimination, mobility and many others.

The Forum is a critical initiative for experts seeking to meet the challenges facing the world of sport. Leaders in this field can therefore expect a greater understanding of how sport is adapting to issues of economy, scale and innovation in the EU and beyond.
