Please be aware that the following IOC subsidies for NOCs’ participation in the Olympic Games Paris 2024 are now available on RELAY. We strongly encourage federations with already qualified athletes to contact their NOCs to see if this can benefit from it.

  • NOC Games Operations subsidy:  The budget of USD 20,000 has been allocated to all participating NOCs and the corresponding advance payment of USD 15,000 will be transferred to the NOC's bank account during the course of the week.  
  • Reimbursement of flight tickets for 6 athletes, 2 team officials and 2 NOC officials: The financial report is now available in your dashboard. Furthermore, with the price of the flight tickets increasing significantly, we strongly encourage your NOC to book the tickets as soon as possible particularly the ones in business class and the ones for athletes/coaches once they qualify for Paris 2024.

Cooperation partnerships

The primary goal of Cooperation Partnerships is to allow organisations to increase the quality and relevance of their activities, to develop and reinforce their networks of partners, to increase their capacity to operate jointly at transnational level, boosting internationalisation of their activities and through exchanging or developing new practices and methods as well as sharing and confronting ideas. They aim to support the development, transfer and/or implementation of innovative practices as well as the implementation of joint initiatives promoting cooperation, peer learning and exchanges of experience at European level. Results should be re-usable, transferable, up-scalable and, if possible, have a strong transdisciplinary dimension. Selected projects will be expected to share the results of their activities at local, regional, national level and transnational level.

Cooperation Partnerships are anchored to the priorities and policy frameworks of each Erasmus+ sector, both at European and national level, while aiming at producing incentives for cross-sectoral and horizontal cooperation in thematic areas.

Small-scale partnerships

Small-scale Partnerships are designed to widen access to the programme to small-scale actors and individuals who are hard to reach in the fields of school education, adult education, vocational education and training, youth and sport. With lower grant amounts awarded to organisations, shorter duration and simpler administrative requirements compared to the Cooperation Partnerships, this action aims at reaching out to grassroots organisations, less experienced organisations and newcomers to the Programme, reducing entry barriers to the programme for organisations with smaller organisational capacity. This action will also support flexible formats – mixing activities with transnational and national character although with a European dimension – allowing organisations to have more means to reach out to people with fewer opportunities. Small-scale Partnerships can also contribute to the creation and development of transnational networks and to fostering synergies with, and between, local, regional, national and international policies.

Capacity building in the field of Sport

Capacity-building projects are international cooperation projects based on multilateral partnerships between organisations active in the field of sport in Programme and third countries not associated to the Programme in Region 1 (Western Balkans) and Region 2 (Neighbourhood East). They aim to support sport activities and policies in third countries not associated to the Programme as a vehicle to promote values as well as an educational tool to promote the personal and social development of individuals and build more cohesive communities.

Objectives of the Action

The action will aim at:

  • raising the capacity of grassroots sport organisations;
  • encouraging the practice of sport and physical activity in third countries not associated to the Programme;
  • promoting social inclusion through sport;
  • promoting positive values through sport (such as fair play, tolerance, team spirit);
  • fostering cooperation across different regions of the world through joint initiatives.

Thematic areas / specific objectives

Proposals should focus on certain thematic areas defined at programming stage. Examples of particularly relevant areas are:

  • promotion of common values, non-discrimination and gender equality through sport;
  • development of skills (though sport) needed to improve the social involvement of disadvantaged groups (e.g. independence, leadership etc.).
  • integration of migrants;
  • post-conflict reconciliation

Not-for-profit European Sport Events

Objectives of the Action

This Action aims to support the organisation of sport events with a European dimension in the following fields:

  • Volunteering in sport;
  • Social inclusion through sport, in particular fostering the inclusion of people with disabilities;
  • Fight against discrimination in sport, including gender equality;
  • Encouraging healthy lifestyles for all: projects under this priority will mainly focus on: a) the implementation of the three pillars of the HealthyLifestyle4All initiative, b) the implementation of the Council Recommendation on health-enhancing physical activity and the EU Physical Activity Guidelines c) the support to the implementation of the European Week of Sport d) the promotion of sport and physical activity as a tool for health e) the promotion of all activities encouraging the practice of sport and physical activity f) promotion of traditional sport and games.

The project has to focus on one of these objectives. It can also focus on the remaining objectives but the main objective must be clearly identifiable and prevailing in the proposal.

It provides financial support for the organization of one European-wide sport event in one EU Member State or third country associated to the Programme or for the organisation of European local events in several EU Member States and third countries associated to the Programme.
