The Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA), which is in charge of the implementation of the Erasmus+ sport programme, is one of the European institutions that is influenced by the corona crisis. The implementation of projects organised by EACEA are affected and flexibility is now more needed than ever.
Today, Europe is the "epicentre" of the global coronavirus pandemic, according to the WHO. The arrival of Covid-19 has forced many sport organisations, to take precautionary measures, like postponing or cancelling events, meetings and sometimes even ceasing their activities.
In a move to strengthen its cooperation with EU institutions, protect the important role of International Federations (IFs) and fully tap into the potential of sport, the Association of Summer Olympic International Federations (ASOIF) has become a partner of the EOC EU Office.
