Between 8-12 May 2017, Elisabetta Nones and Francesco Scannicchio, both coming from the University of Trento, visited three ENAS colleagues: Aachen, Wuppertal and Maastricht. While they are working on a new sport for all policy, to be the first of its kind in Italy, they are looking for ideas and experience to build on. After joining ENAS in 2015, Elisabetta and Francesco first visited the ENAS Forum and Assembly in Malta in 2016. Soon after this they hosted the ENAS Executive Committee meeting in February 2017 and further developed the plans they made during the event in Malta to visit several ENAS colleagues. Their visited was supported by an Erasmus Plus Staff Training grant.
Elisabetta, reports on her experience:
“The first and most successful outcome for me as a new member of the ENAS community has been the establishment of relations and contacts with colleagues of other European universities. At the Forum and Assembly in ENAS where we met Peter Lynen (RWTH Sport Aachen), Katrin Bührmann and Anja Steinbacher (Wuppertal) I planned an Erasmus Plus Staff training to go and visit their facilities, and we also extended the trip to Maastricht University where we met Netty Bekkers-Vos and Birgitte Hendrickx . The trip took place on 8-12 May and it turned out to be extremely useful and rewarding. The meeting with the colleagues and the exchange of ideas provided new energy to me and my colleague Francesco Scannicchio. We are currently working on a “sport-for-all” program which sees sport as the main cross-discipline driver in education. We could experience in person what it is like to have sport permeate the daily life of the whole university community. We appreciated the special and warm hospitality that everyone had in our regards and we loved being part of the teams for a few days in all three university sport centres. We will bring home a lot of ideas and especially a nice friendship with wonderful colleagues. We hope we will be able to return the hospitality with a future event at the University of Trento. I highly suggest this kind of visits that thanks to their informal format are very successful in reinforcing the European sense of community and belonging.”

On 24th January 2017 the Erasmus+-funded project “Active Campus Europe” (ACE) was launched at the Provincial Government Building in Maastricht. The Province Governor of Limburg /The Netherlands, the Vice Rector Professor Doris Klee, RWTH Aachen University /Germany and the Vive-rector Professor Harm Hospers, University Maastricht/The Netherlands welcomed the ACE project members. They underlined the importance and relevance of the European health project for the University setting and the collaboration between the universities in times of doubts about the European Union.
“Active Campus Europe” is about a program for inactive people at Universities in Europe. University Sports activities shall support the target of health promotion activities at the University in order to motive inactive people to sports and physical activities. They should be educated taking responsibility for their own health care.
RWTH Aachen University successfully run a project “Health promotion and prevention for staff and students through physical activities and sport” from 2009-2011, inside the so called “INFORM”-program which was hosted by the German Federal Ministry of Health and the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture. Based on the project experience, RWTH Aachen University invited 15 Universities from Finland, United Kingdom, Ireland, Portugal, Spain, The Netherlands and Germany to create and implement a program for Europe. The Project contents are a collection of good practice models, a common intervention program and the evaluation of the program. In Maastricht the program details were discussed, a first collection of good practice models were made and a common intervention program – based on models at Trinity College Dublin and University College Dublin – was chosen.
Ace will run until December 2018. All partners are enthusiastic to design a role model for University sport in Europe.
