Mrs Ute Haller-Block (Erasmus Plus Sport Unit) presents at 12th EFDN Conference

The 12th EFDN ‘#Morethanfootball’ Conference is less than 3 weeks away and with that in mind, we are extremely happy to welcome Ute Haller-Block of the European Union EACEA office (Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency) as a speaker.

Ute will present the Erasmus+ Funding opportunities for Sport and the presentation will give an overview of the Erasmus+ programme, with a specific focus on the Sport Chapter. She will explain the policy along with its context and their main aims of promoting collaborative partnerships, not-for-profit European Sports events, as well as supporting actions to strengthen the evidence base for policy making (studies, data gathering, surveys etc), to promote dialogue with relevant European stakeholders.

In addition, the presentation will cover the development of the Erasmus+ Sport Action, will provide information and the main rules regarding funding opportunities and Ute will also discuss best practice examples that can be used for ideas and inspiration for future projects.

The Sports programme is of particular interest to her as it addresses a wide spectrum of issues all at once, including inclusion, education, youth and health.
