Nikola Benin


The general objective is the promotion of health-enhancing physical activity (HEPA) in EU and national policy.

The specific objective is to promote broader access to the practice of sport and physical activities for refugees.

Expected results:

  • Awareness-raising among refugees about the health and social benefits of practicing sport and physical activity;
  • Better well-being and integration of refugees in society through sport and physical activity;
  • Increased knowledge among refugees of European values through participation in sport and physical activity

This call would allow the testing of development of HEPA activities in at least 6 Member States particularly concerned by the massive arrival of refugees with at least 6 projects selected. These projects should involve local sport organisations and take into account gender equality. A single project should involve at least 100 refugees.


The total budget earmarked for the co-financing of projects is estimated at €600.000,00.

The maximum amount for each grant will be €60.000,00 .The Commission reserves the right not to distribute all the funds available.

The EU contribution may not exceed 80% of the total eligible costs of the project.

Deadline: 09/09/2016
