EU Sport Forum 2023
The EU Sport Forum, held on 2-3 May in Stockholm, Sweden, allowed representatives from public policy, European Union (EU) institutions, private enterprise, educational and other experts from across the field of sport to discuss challenges, opportunities and the future of sport in the EU.

The EU Sport Forum served as the main platform for structured dialogue between the European Commission and sport stakeholders. The main objective of the event was to take stock of progress achieved in implementing the EU agenda for sport, and to seek stakeholders’ views on current and planned or possible future activities.

The forum was also a critical initiative for experts seeking to meet the challenges facing the world of sport. Leaders in this field can therefore expect a greater understanding of how sport is adapting to issues of economy, scale and innovation in the EU and beyond. In this year’s edition the main topic was the EU strategy for 2023 with the 3Is – innovation, inclusion and involvement.

Over 350 participants took part in the forum that saw several keynote speakers, namely:

  • Catherine Chabaud, Member of the European Parliament
  • Philipp Lahm and Célia Šašić, respectively Tournament Director and Ambassador of the Organising Committee of the UEFA Euro 2024.

The novelty of this year’s forum was the #BeInclusive EU Sport Awards ceremony.

Viviane Hoffmann, Deputy Director-General for Education, Youth, Sport and Culture and three special guests announced the winners of the competition.
