Together with five other partners, Cluster Sports & Technology managed to win a European project in which people will be stimulated to be more physically active. With this project, we want to offer best practices from all around Europe that tackle the problem with inactivity which has only increased after the Covid-19 pandemic.

What does the Re-Train project entail?

This European project aims at encouraging healthy lifestyles for all, especially to support the implementation of the European Week of Sport by fostering innovation and developing new models and programs capable of stimulating the participation of citizens in sport and physical activity in the post-pandemic era.

For this, we are working together with 5 other parties: Universidad Europea de Valencia (Spain), EUROPEAN CULTURE AND SPORT ORGANIZATION (Italy), JYVASKYLAN KAUPUNKI (Finland), INNOVATIONSMANUFAKTUR GMBH (Germany) and EPSI (Belgium). EPSI is the leader of this project and thus takes on the coordinator role. The project has a budget of 400 000 euros, divided among the partners. Together we will work to get more people in Europe to be physically active! An ambitious project needs ambitious goals!

How will the trajectory go?

The project will organize a series of conferences/workshop at local level during the European weeks of sport, EWOS2023 and EWOS2024, held by each partner in its own country, aimed at the concrete involvement of relevant stakeholders and policy makers such as Sport SMEs, sport organizations and federations, and public sector. In each conference/Workshop, it will be mandatory to preview a specific sport activity within the program, in the same model of European Week of sport initiatives and periodic meeting. The participants will be pushed to take a commitment in one of the topics of the ERASMUS+ SPORT programme.

Cluster Sports &Technology supports the development of the mapping  and analysing the best practices from different people that get people to be physically active. After that, a transferability guide will be created and shared with interested parties across Europe.

The project will finish in December 2024. We will keep you updated on our progress through our news section!
