Successful launch of the INTERACT Plus project

FISU 13 February 2023

Led by by TAFISA and funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union, INTERACT Plus builds upon the completed INTERACT project, its recommendations and outputs, as well as the needs and expectations identified by the International and European Sport Organisations (ISOs).

The project reflects on our changing world (Impact of Covid-19) and aims to bridge the gap between theory and practice by supporting and positioning ISOs as key leaders of the Sport for All and physical activity movement.

This will include the development of a new Sport for All delivery model and the creation of a knowledge and experience-sharing platform between ISOs and their national federations.

While the INTERACT and INTERACT Plus partners already met during the INTERACT Closing Conference in December 2022 and the first bilateral meetings which took place throughout January 2023, a plenary meeting was a good way to launch the project.

Initial activities include making the case for Sport for All within the Sport Movement and creating a narrative for the project. This goes hand-in-hand with the development from theory to practice and the update and implementation of the INTERACT capacity-building framework.

Furthermore, the project wants to create an INTERACT Plus label to provide an incentive for ISOs to promote Sport for All.

The INTERACT Plus Advisory Board which includes the different ISOs will help ensure the completion of all these deliverables. The inclusion of ISOs in the project is of utmost importance to ensure measures that will encourage them to promote Sport for All are in place.

The INTERACT Plus project partners are:

International University Sports Federation (FISU)

University of Limerick

World Minigolf Federation

World Dance Organisation

International Table Tennis Federation Foundation

International Fistball Association

Confederazione Boccistica Internazionale

European Flying Disc Federation
