The Sport Chapter in the Erasmus+ Programme aims to support European partnerships on grassroots sport in order to pursue the following objectives:

  • Tackle cross-border threats to the integrity of sport, such as doping, match fixing and violence, as well as all kinds of intolerance and discrimination;
  • To promote and support good governance in sport and dual careers of athletes;
  • To promote voluntary activities in sport, together with social inclusion, equal opportunities and awareness of the importance of health-enhancing physical activity, through increased participation in, and equal access to sport for all.

The next deadline is on the 14th of May for Collaborative partnerships in the sport field and Not-for-profit European sport events NOT related to the 2015 European Week of Sport.
