Launching SIGGS 3.0: Elevating Good Governance in European Sports

Launching SIGGS 3.0: Elevating Good Governance in European Sports

Commencing on 1 January 2024, the EOC EU Office is coordinating its latest EU-funded venture, SIGGS 3.0, designed to strengthen the implementation of good governance. This Small-scale Partnership co-financed by the European Commission through the Erasmus+ programme is set to be running from January 2024 to March 2025 together with our partner Symantra.

The commitment to promoting good governance is deeply rooted within the EOC EU Office. The SIGGS self-evaluation tool, in its first generation, dates back to 2016, demonstrating a strong dedication to improving how European sports organizations implement and adhere to the principles of good governance.

The rulings from the European Court of Justice on 21 December 2023, regarding the ISU, ESL, and Royal Antwerp cases underscore that the subject of Good Governance is ever pertinent. The evolving expectations on sports governing bodies necessitate an ongoing commitment to upholding and implementing good governance principles. To fortify the European Sport Model and sustain the functions and powers of sports governing bodies, our engagement with SIGGS 3.0 becomes timely and even more relevant.

In response to these dynamic demands and acknowledging the numerous users, SIGGS 3.0 is not merely an update to existing content but a comprehensive evolution. Beyond integrity, autonomy, transparency, and democracy, SIGGS 3.0 ventures into new dimensions, addressing the critical themes of inclusion and diversity, as well as environmental sustainability.

Through cooperation with our technical partner, Symantra, the tool undergoes an upgrade in terms of software and user-friendliness, promising a refined and precise experience with SIGGS 3.0. Stay tuned for forthcoming developments. The kick-off meeting is scheduled to take place in Brussels on 25-26 January 2024.
