The EHF Institute’s mission is to deliver world-class education to support national growth. Co-Funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union through a grant of 397k Euros.
The project will build on and enhance good practice structures by developing the EHF Institute with four strategic pillars to facilitate sustainable, high-quality national growth across member federations in Europe. EHF Institute Strategic Pillars:
A range of sessions across two days allowed a variety of sharing knowledge and action planning for 2022 pilots of additional programmes which will be officially launched from 2023 onwards. This includes Athlete Welfare, Athlete Dual Career opportunities, and the expansion of delivering national level programmes for EHF member National Associations.
Nathan Kipp (Coach Education Manager for KNHB) was enthused about the partner meeting “it was spectacular to get everyone in the room for the first time. There is so much energy to resolve and increase educational opportunities in Europe, I am excited to keep working with all the partners.”
