The next phase of Sport for Unity, Resilience and Empowerment (SURE) project has been launched

After the kick-off meeting in Azores, Portugal on 29-30 April 2024, the project partners began working on the research phase of the project.

Sure Project 2
Co Funded By Eu

The research led by OPES (Italy) and 100% Sport (Austria) consists of collecting data on best practices on inclusion and lived experience from vulnerable target groups related to access to sport.

A part of the research is dedicated to analysis of various cooperation models with focus on resilience and inclusion, especially in crisis settings. Interviews, surveys and collection of good practices will be conducted by all partners in the next months. The findings from research will be published in the final phase of the project.

Sure Project Kick Off 2024

SURE gathers a competent and motivated consortium of 11 partners and 5 associated partners from 13 countries, coming from private and public fields, from within and outside the organised sport movement to provide elements of answers to the following questions:


-How could the grassroots sport movement be more accessible?

-How can sport be more affordable?

-How can sport prevent dropout in times of crisis?


What is the main goal of SURE?

With this project the partners aim to enhance and test a model of cooperation to build the resilience of the organized sport movement and ensure the societal role of sport for stronger communities, focusing on the access to sport for the most vulnerable socio-economic groups, with the aim to be better equipped to face crisis (energy, displacement, pandemic).
