Following the successful kick-off meeting on 26 and 27 March in Brussels, and the launch of the official project website, GAMES has now submitted its Project Implementation Plan, in cooperation with the project's consortium.
The Project Implementation Plan provides a clear and unanimous understanding regarding the requirement and expectations from each partner to complete the project activities and deliverables and this document should be seen as systematic guidance for each WP’s activities and deliverables in order to address delays, challenges, potential risks and mitigation measures when necessary. It describes the project objectives, activities and deliverables, as well as defines roles and responsibilities among project partners.
The Project Implementation Plan lays the foundations for project activities in the upcoming months. Accordingly, the EOC Office and the Consortium partners will continue to work on the core aspects of the GAMES projects' main and specific objectives.
GAMES is a 24-month project co-funded by the European Union through the Erasmus+ Sport Programme 2021. GAMES focuses to improve gender equality in the key leadership and decision-making positions of the National Olympic Committees (NOCs) by promoting structural changes in their governance, enhancing the understanding of the existing cultural barriers and encouraging the NOCs to work with their member federations to create a sustainable change.
The EOC EU Office is implementing GAMES together with 8 NOCs (Belgium, Czech Republic, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Latvia, North Macedonia and Turkey) and renowned experts in the field of gender equality and good governance, including Professor Emerita Kari Fasting from Equal Rights in Sport and I TRUST Sport. Furthermore, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) will also act as a key player in terms of promoting and disseminating the project deliverables across all NOCs worldwide.
