Capacity-building projects are international cooperation projects based on multilateral partnerships between organisations active in the field of sport in Programme and Third countries not associated to the Programme.
Aims of the action
Capacity-building projects aim to
- raise the capacity of grassroots sport organisations
- encourage the practice of sport and physical activity in Third countries not associated to the Programme
- promote social inclusion through sport
- promote positive values through sport (such as fair play, tolerance, team spirit)
- foster cooperation across different regions of the world through joint initiatives
Thematic areas / specific objectives
Proposals should focus on certain thematic areas defined at programming stage. Examples of particularly relevant areas are:

- integration of migrants
- post-conflict reconciliation
