Invitation to the 5th conference on investments in sport

The Croatian Olympic Committee is organising the 5th of 7 national conferences entitled “Investments in Sport” within the project under the same title (Investments in Sport, abbr. iSport), which was co-funded by the Erasmus+: Sport Programme of the European Union.

The 5th conference on investments in sport will be held in Luxembourg on the 25th of February 2020.

The purpose of the national conference is to open a dialogue between the national policy makers and the key stakeholders in sport in Benelux, as well as the representatives of the business sector, regarding the economic and social impact of investments in sport based on the “Guidelines on investments in sport” that were developed by the team of researchers on the iSport project.

The main objective of the conferences is to promote a better recognition of the contribution of sport to the overall goals of the Europe 2020 Strategy given the sector’s strong potential to contribute to smart, sustainable and inclusive growth and new jobs, and considering its positive effects on social inclusion, education and training as well as public health and active ageing.

Conference speakers will be the leading European experts in the field Dr. Themis Kokolakakis, Dr. Anna Kleissner, Guenther Grohall, Alberto Bichi and Alma Papić.

Conference participants are the policy makers on all levels of government in Luxembourg, Belgium and Netherlands, as well as the decision-makers from the sport sector and potential investors in sport infrastructure from the business sector. Participants will be able to actively participate in the discussion and share their unique perspectives on investments in sport.

The “Guidelines on investments in sport” will be further discussed with the policy makers and other key stakeholders in Croatia and Cyprus in 2020. Participants’ input will be used to improve the final version of the “Guidelines on investments in sport”, as well as for the development of the “Recommendations for policy-makers”.
