Belgian Presidency label –

Our conference was awarded the Belgian Presidency label. Some of the criteria that projects had to meet to obtain the label were that (i) events must take place during the six-month Belgian Presidency of the Council of the European Union and (ii) have a connection with the EU or the priorities of the Belgian Presidency. Together with other projects, the 5th annual Sport & EU conference has been awarded the Belgian Presidency label from more than 300 applications!!
