EU-Sport Policy study presented to European Parliament
In 2020, the work unit of Prof. Mittag (DSHS, lead) and the WGI (Prof. Naul, co lead) as a research consortium won the European Parliament’s tender, an expertise on “EU Sport Policy: Assessment and Possible Ways Forward” ( IP / B / CULT / IC / 2020-025).
The consortium also included the European Physical Education Association (EUPEA) and the European youth sports organization ENGSO Youth. These partners were represented by Claude Scheuer (also a member of the Scientific Advisory Board of the WGI) and Ugne Chmeliauskaite (Chair of ENGSO Youth). Sebastian Brückner and Christina Uhlenbrock also worked on this project for WGI or in cooperation with the WGI.
The study published in June was presented in the European Parliament on June 22, 2021. Prof. Mittag and Prof. Naul each gave a short presentation and then answered questions from members of parliament. The study, the executive summary, the EU press release and a video recording of the parliamentary session are available for download here.
