Erasmus+ actions in the field of sport promote participation in sport, physical activity, and voluntary activities.They are designed to tackle societal and sport-related challenges. Opportunities are available for organisations under 3 Calls which address these challenges:

  • Cooperation Partnerships: Designed for organisations to develop and implement joint activities to promote (among others) sport and physical activity, as well as deal with threats to the integrity of sport (such as doping or match-fixing), promote dual careers for athletes, improve good governance, and foster tolerance and social inclusion.
  • Small-scale Partnerships: For grassroots organisations, less experienced organisations and newcomers to the Programme. Small-Scale Partnerships have simpler administration, smaller grants and shorter durations than Cooperation Partnerships.
  • Not-for-profit European Sport Events: Designed to encourage sporting activity, implement EU strategies for social inclusion through sport, foster volunteering in sport, fight against discrimination and encourage the participation in sport and physical activity. EDC obtained support from Europe under this Call

A specific call on Capacity Building in the field of sport is also available as of 2022.
