Work package 7
The purpose of this WP is to disseminate and discuss proposed policies, organisational structures and cultures as well as best practice developed in the second part of the project and described in the handbook with suggestions for sport policies, club management, etc., which can promote social inclusion and volunteering.
This WP is implemented in three stages:
- In the first stage, a website for the project is created.
- In the second stage, the project hosts a European conference to which the EU sports unit, politicians, ministries responsible for sport, national sports organisations and European sports organisations are invited to participate.
- In the third stage, the project partners and associate partner hosts a conference in each of the participating countries to which national sports organisations, municipalities, etc. are invited to participate.
WP 7 ensures that the knowledge generated in this project is disseminated to relevant actors at both the European level and at the national level in the participating countries.
This WP is implemented from March 1st 2015 to December 31st 2017.
This is the most expensive WP, which is mainly due to the cost of the European conference and the conference to be held in each of the participating countries. However, it is the countries that bear the costs of the national conferences. The total budgeted expenditure for this WP is 160,000 Euro (not including expenses for management, coordination, meetings, seminars, etc..) which is equivalent to 22 percent of the total budget.
The success criteria (measurable indicators) for this WP are:
a) The implementation of a European conference with 200 participants representing ministries as well as sports organisations and representing at least ten European countries (June 2017).
b) The implementation of the national conferences in cooperation with national sports organisations with in average 100 participants representing public authorities as well as sports federations and sports clubs (August, September and October 2017).
c) The dissemination of the reports for the different work packages, the final report and the handbook to all national sports organisations and public authorities dealing with sport (November and December 2017).
