With the 2018 Forum in Nijmegen fast approaching, Core H&F would like to share their exciting plans to help you enjoy your time with your ENAS colleagues.
For this year’s forum, Core H&F have created a short survey of six questions to see how they might be able to assist you with your upcoming facility developments in 2019 and beyond. For the chance to win 3 x MYZONE Watches, 3 x MYZONE Belts and a Schwinn/Stairmaster HIIT Education day for your staff, please fill out the survey by following the link on the Evenium app or by speaking with Greg at the forum.
The MYZONE ‘2018 ENAS Forum Challenge’ is now live until the 15th November, when we will announce the person who has earned the most MEP’s since 15th October. Make sure to bring your MYZONE belts with you to the forum to keep score of those MEP’s earned during the workouts with Wayne.
In Nijmegen, HIIT workouts with Wayne will feature even more equipment than last year. Ten pieces of Stairmaster HIIT equipment, combined with accessories such as kettlebells and agility ladders, will help make your workouts even more fun and effective. Class sizes have been limited to 20 participants per session this year, with class booking available on the Evenium app. Be sure to book yourself on to one of the three sessions (Wednesday 14th, 7-8am and Thursday 15th, 7-8am + 4:15-5:15pm) to secure your spot. If for some reason you are unable to attend a booked session, please make sure you remove your booking so that others can take the space. This year, Wayne will also be hosting a HIIT Bike calorie burn challenge during the networking breaks. Come and jump on a bike to see how quickly you can burn 25 calories!
If you have questions on any of the above, please speak to Greg at the forum or contact him on +44 7824858681 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Looking forward to seeing you all in Nijmegen in a couple of weeks!
If you missed it, the ENAS Award shortlist was announced last week.
We’re now happy to provide some background on each of the projects that have made the shortlist and will be presented at our Forum & Assembly in Nijmegen.
First up is University College Dublin and their project ‘Students helping Students’.
‘Students Helping Students’ at UCD Dublin integrates real-world learning and service provision for students by students in a university sport setting.
Partnership between the Physiotherapy unit and Sport Services gives students a structured Physiotherapy work placement in the Sport Centre, supervised by Physiotherapy staff.
They develop and deliver services in response to student needs, while gaining experiential learning. To date, initiatives include: supporting the Active Campus Europe programme; delivering classes; provision of sports massage, recovery and advice for athletes; first aid for UCD sport teams; engagement in health, exercise and wellness promotion for the university community.
You can find out ever more about UCD’s initiative at the Forum & Assembly when they present the project to our delegates, prior to the final vote.
Keep an eye out tomorrow and Thursday for our other two finalists.

ENAS and our hosts in Nijmegen are delighted to announce the first confirmed speakers for the 21st ENAS Forum and Assembly in November.
Brothers Patrick and Milan Van Der Meulen will be the keynote speakers for the first session of the Forum.
They became inspired by An Inconvenient Truth when they were very young. The Dutch brothers are part of an international and dynamic group of world changers who shape the debate about climate problems. Milan was appointed Climate Reality Leader in 2015 after training from the former Vice President of the United States, Al Gore.
They co-founded www.enie.nl, which focuses on integrating many forms of renewable energy into creative hybrid systems. The session will focus on three important questions: Should we change? Can we change? Are we going to change?
Register now, get inspired and join us to become lean, mean and green in 2018!

The 2017 ENAS Forum in Trondheim has come and gone and we hope that everybody has had a wonderful week.
Including all of our local representatives, sponsors and speakers, we had a total of 165 delegates. In that number, we had 75 organisations and 20 nations represented.
From sponsorship to research to major events, we had some wonderful speakers in our sessions this year.
Following a fun and informative pre-event, we started off the forum with an opening dinner in the Salvskinnet Café during which we paid tribute to our new honorary members while also welcoming the new member institutions.
Plaques were presented to Pädagogische Hochschule Heidelberg, Sport Campus Avignon, University of Goettingen, University of Coimbra, Simon Fraser University, Student Sports Netherlands and Swedish University Sports Federation during the dinner while other new members Vytautas Magnus University, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and British Universities and Colleges Sport were not present.
The first session entitled ‘From research to re-invention’ took place on Wednesday morning and we had Jayne Wilson (Sheffield Hallam University) and Arne Göring (University of Goettingen).
Jayne gave an interesting presentation on the value of sports for developing career and life skills and the income gap between those who did participate in recreation in University compared to those who did not.
She was then followed by Arne Göring who gave insight into the educational potential of sport and the positive results achieved in research so far.
Wednesday’s second session was focused on maximising your income as an institution, entitled ‘Impact, Value and Legacy’.
The first speaker was Sara Liebscher (Director of Athletics Advancement, Notre Dame University) who spoke about fundraising through different methods and target markets.

Guri Hetland (Manager of the Trondheim 2023 Bid) then shared her knowledge on planning and hosting major events.
The final speaker in Session 2 was ASVZ’s Lorenz Ursprung who shared his knowledge on University sports as a sellable product.
For Wednesday’s afternoon session, ENAS was joined by Michael Pedersen of M. Inc who turned all of our delegates into secret agents.
Throughout the session, our delegates who were set in the year of 2022 undertook various tasks against the clock.
Throughout the rest of the evening, delegates took part in the Asbjörn Cup and the winners were announced during dinner in the student Samfundet.
It was back to business on Thursday morning for Session 4: ‘Utilising the Research’, during which we had Dutch and Irish delegates speaking.
Marije Deutekom and Vera Dekkers from University of Applied Sciences Amsterdam presented studies conducted in the Netherlands on the relationship between sports and the results of students.

Also speaking in Session 4 was Niamh O’Callaghan from Dublin Institute of Technology who presented the results of a Student Sport Ireland survey based around participation in sport.
The fifth and final session took place immediately after.
Paola Ottonello, European Commission, made a presentation about Erasmus+ and the EU Week of Sport before she was rushed away to the airport.
We were then re-joined by Michael Pedersen who shared his expertise on Stakeholder Engagement.
