The call for proposals will serve to select high-quality transnational projects which will be supported through the 2012 Preparatory Action “European Partnership on Sports”.
On 29 March 2012 the Commission adopted the 2012 Annual Work Programme on “grants and contracts for the Preparatory Action – European Partnership on Sports and for the Pilot Project – Knowledge Partnerships”. On this basis, the Commission has now launched a call for proposals to support transnational projects presented by public bodies or civil society organisations in the field of sport. This call follows the ones launched in 2009, 2010 and 2011 which resulted in financial support for, respectively, 18 projects (out of 207 applications), 12 projects (out of 146 applications) and 12 projects (out of 106 applications).
The 2012 call for proposals, endowed with an indicative budget of € 3.5 million, will support transnational projects aimed at identifying suitable networks and good practices in the following areas:
(1) The fight against match-fixing,
(2) The promotion of physical activity supporting active ageing,
(3) Awareness-raising about effective ways of promoting sport at municipal level,
(4) Trans-frontier joint grassroots sport competitions in neighbouring regions and Member States.
The official announcement of the 2012 call for proposals was published in the Official Journal of the European Union on 17 April 2012: 2012/C 110/04
