Transition meeting for the EHF Institute

Posted On 28/06/2021

The EHF Institute is co-funded by the European Union Erasmus+ grant

The EHF Institute objective is to deliver world-class education to support national growth. Creating an education framework that addresses support on a national, regional, and European level. The EHF Institute project partner consortium met last month to align the strategic intent to create tools and resources that provide transparent and accessible learning for people at all levels of the sport.

EHF Institute Consortium Partners are

·        EUROPEAN HOCKEY FEDERATION (Project Coordinator)

·        ASSOCIATION ROYALE BELGE DE HOCKEY

·        FÉDÉRATION FRANÇAISE DE HOCKEY

·        COPENHAGEN UNIVERSITY

·        STICHTING ORANGE SPORTS FORUM

·        ROYAL DUTCH HOCKEY FEDERATION

·        DEUTSCHE HOCKEY BUND

·        HOCKEY MAGIC

·        SLOVENIAN HOCKEY FEDERATION

·        SWISS HOCKEY FEDERATION

The project will build on and enhance good practice structures by developing the EIH with four strategic pillars to facilitate sustainable, high-quality national growth across member federations in Europe. The first transnational meeting was held online over a two-day period as each partner presented the intellectual outputs across the pillars. This included working outcomes against Governance Frameworks, Athlete Welfare, and Dual Careers, plus Coaching and Officiating National level frameworks. All of which is being underpinned by a strategic analysis of the workforce needs for each of these elements.

The consortium is building towards a one-day virtual meeting this summer.

EHF Head of National Association Development, Education and Funding, Tom Pedersen-Smith said “It was great to get the partners together to start to get into the fundamentals of the project and have visibility on next steps. We are very fortunate to have such excellent partners and I’m very excited about working with them over the coming months.”
