On Monday 30 September and Tuesday 1 October 2013, the European Commission organised the annual EU Sport Forum. This Forum, which is part of the structured dialogue with the sport movement, took place in Vilnius, Lithuania and brought together 320 representatives of the sports sector, including the EOC EU Office and several National Olympic Committees (NOCs). The full conference could also be watched on live streaming via the website of the Sport Unit of the European Commission.
After the opening addresses of the Lithuanian Presidency, the European Commission and the European Parliament, the EU Sport Forum started with a session on the results of the projects funded under the Preparatory Actions in the field of sport 2011.
In two parallel workshops (one on the prevention of and fight against violence and intolerance in sport; and one on promoting innovative approaches to strengthen the organisation of sport in Europe), the project coordinators presented the results of their projects. The “Sport 4 Good Governance” Project, managed by the EOC EU Office, was also presented. In an exhibition room, the projects were also given an information stand.
