Key areas of collaboration include the fields of education through sport, athlete education, anti-doping and integrity in sport education, the promotion of healthy lifestyle among students, the development and promotion of international university sport, and the engagement of National Olympic Committees (NOCs) throughout the world in these endeavours.

 

 

FISU President Oleg Matytsin hailed the signing of the memorandum and, on the second day of the ANOC General Assembly, spoke of his enthusiasm for the partnership. "FISU is honoured to sign a MoU with ANOC. As part of the strategic plan now in place for FISU, we have already made great progress towards one of our first priorities: greater engagement with the Olympic Movement,” President Matytsin said. “It was very clear to all of us in Prague this week just how important ANOC is to the Movement.

 

FISU and ANOC agreed to collaborate in the fields of education through sport, athlete education, anti-doping and integrity in sport education, amongst others 

“The attendees at this week's ANOC General Assembly, not least including International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Thomas Bach, are a demonstration of how university sport and FISU competitions can be a unique stepping-stone towards leadership in sport and elsewhere.

“Our Universiades also continue to be great preparation for NOC success at the Olympic Games, both Summer and Winter. And this is not just for athletes, but also chefs de mission, for coaches, for support and medical staff. We look forward to working with the National Olympic Committees to make university sport a powerful and positive part of their national success.”
