EOC EU Office’s SIGGS Project selected as “success story”

The ‘Support the Implementation of Good Governance in Sport’ (SIGGS) Project of the EOC EU Office has officially been selected by the European Commission as a “success story”. The SIGGS Project ran from January 2015 until December 2016 and was officially supported by the Erasmus+ Sport Programme of the European Union.

The selection was made by a panel of experts from the Directorate-General for Education, Youth, Sport and Culture of the European Commission. In a letter to inform the EOC EU Office, it was explained that “Success stories are finalised projects that have distinguished themselves by their impact, contribution to policy-making, innovative results and/or creative approach and can be a source of inspiration for others. The choice of your project as a success story was made on the basis of a selection process according to rigorous criteria regarding the quality, relevance and results of your project.”

The EOC EU Office is extremely pleased with this recognition of its hard work over the past years. Folker Hellmund, Director of the EOC EU Office, stated that “the SIGGS Project is a typical example of how the EU can contribute to challenges within the Olympic and Sports Movement. We would like to thank the Commission as well as all project partners once again for the fruitful cooperation and for the trust that they have put in the EOC EU Office to implement this ambitious project.” 

Following this selection, the SIGGS Project will be marked as “success story” in the ‘Erasmus+ Project Results Platform’ of the European Commission. This platform gathers all project results of Erasmus+ Projects in one comprehensive database. 

Despite the fact that with the adoption of the final report of SIGGS all formal procedures have been finalised, the SIGGS Project still continues. First of all, the good governance self-evaluation tool for NOCs and national sport federations remains online. Secondly, activities are still taking place, including for instance a Workshop on good governance organised by the European Volleyball Confederation (CEV) for national volleyball federations on 1 September during the CEV Congress. And finally, through its upcoming POINTS Project , the EOC EU Office will continue its efforts regarding governance and sports integrity.
