Dear Education and Culture (EAC),
Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:
Subsidies assignated from European Union to the sport JUDO during the last 5 years, specified by country, purpouse and organizations (Federation, athletes, clubs, etc)
Thank you for your email.
Within last five years (and before) none of the Judo-clubs received
EU-funding from our Directorate-General.
We organise every calls for proposals, but they always refer to certain
areas of activities. Below you will find more information about what rules
are applicable in terms of funding of sport activities, and which areas
were supported. I hope it clarifies your question.
The European Commission applies the principles of equal treatment and
transparency and organises open calls for proposals in order to award
money in the form of grants. The Commission’s departments publish calls
for proposals on their internet sites.
Calls for proposals invite candidates to present, within a given deadline,
a proposal for action that corresponds to the objectives pursued and
fulfils the required conditions. Therefore, Commission grants are not
awarded on a case-by-case basis. The award of Commission grants directly
to certain beneficiaries without a call for proposals is an exceptional
procedure reserved solely for beneficiaries in a situation of monopoly or
for emergency situations (humanitarian aid in particular).
The Commission is currently implementing Preparatory Actions in the field
of sport in order to prepare future EU actions, in particular within the
framework of the proposed new programme for education, training, youth and
sport "Erasmus for All" proposed for the period 2014 - 2020.
Calls for proposals have been published annually since 2009. These calls
for proposals were directed at supporting transnational projects put
forward by public bodies or civil society organisations in order to
identify and test suitable networks and good practices in the field of
sport, in the following areas:
* Promoting health-enhancing physical activity
* Promoting education and training in sport
* Promoting European fundamental values by encouraging sport for persons
* Promoting gender equality in sport
* Fight against doping
* Promoting social inclusion in and through sport
* Promoting volunteering in sport
* Prevention of and fight against violence and intolerance in sport
* Strengthening the organisation of sport in Europe
* Fight against match-fixing
* Actions promoting health-enhancing physical activity and active ageing
* Awareness raising about promoting sport at municipal level
* Transfrontier grass-roots sport competitions in neighbouring regions
and Member States (FYI, none of them relating to Judo)
The results of the selection for the 2012 call launched in the framework
of the first year of the Preparatory Action "European Partnership in
Sports" as well as the results for previous calls can be found under:
For 2013, a call for proposals has been published on the internet website
of the Sport unit in April. The deadline for the submission of proposals
is 19 July 2013.
This year, projects in following areas may be supported:
* Strengthening of good governance and dual careers in sport through
support for the mobility of volunteers, coaches, managers and staff of
non-profit sport organisations;
* Protecting athletes, especially the youngest, from health and safety
hazards by improving training and competition conditions;
* Promoting traditional European sports and games.
Please note that in 2013 the third-party private funding is no more
In addition, sport-related projects can sometimes be eligible in the
framework of other EU programmes, which you can find on the following

Spending on JUDO subsidies by country
Dear Education and Culture (EAC),
Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as
developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which
contain the following information:
Subsidies assignated from European Union to the sport JUDO during
the last 5 years, specified by country, purpouse and organizations
(Federation, athletes, clubs, etc)
thanks a lot for your quick response.
I still have a question regarding "call for proposal".
Did any of the money granted for proposals have to do with JUDO related activities/projects in the last 5 years?
