In this context, the EC decided to establish a High Level Group (HLG) composed of experienced and distinguished individuals in the field of gender equality in sport.
Among the 81 candidates who applied to the call for selection of experts, 15 highly qualified individuals were selected.
The EC will officially launch the High Level Group at the beginning of 2021, with a first meeting in February. Members of the HLG will meet approximately every two months to make proposals to the EC, Member States and the Sport Movement in the field of gender equality in sport. The work of these experts will lead to the implementation of concrete actions at national and European level.
