In the framework of the permanent dialogue between the European Union and the sport movement, the European Commission is organising the next EU Sport Forum on 8-9 April 2019 in Bucharest.

This event has become a central meeting for the European and international sport family. Once a year it is a unique opportunity for sport organisations to discuss and exchange views with policy makers and representatives of the EU institutions and Member States. Around 350 participants are expected, mostly representatives of sport movement (federations, sport clubs, athletes and other sport organisations) as well as Member States, local authorities and academics, including partners of the European Week of Sport.

The discussion will focus on main EU priorities in the area of sport, namely the role of sport federations, promotion of healthy lifestyles, funding of grassroots sport and governance of professional sport.
