The ICSS and the Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne (Paris 1 University) are working together to address sport integrity issues, particularly in relation to match-fixing and illegal and irregular betting.
EPAS is one of the international stakeholders invited to be a partner to the program to promote and globally support sport integrity.

Strasbourg University -
Faculty of Sport Science

The partnership between EPAS and the Strasbourg University Faculty of Sport Science includes an agreement involving the 3rd year Bachelor Degree students in Sports management. Every year, the students research and update the information on the “Country fact sheets” which are published on the EPAS website in English and French.

IDHEAP (Swiss Graduate School of Public Administration)
EPAS is co-funding a study on good governance indicators in sport. The implementation partner (IDHEAP) will be assisted by an Accompanying Group set up by EPAS consisting of representatives of contributors (States and sports organisations), advising on the work in progress. The objective of the project is to apply good governance indicators to public authorities in five countries in charge of sport and sports organisations.

Under the DAPHNE III Programme, ENGSO Youth is running a project entitled “Youth Sport stands up for Youth Rights” focusing on the prevention of sexualised violence and harassment in sports. The Council of Europe’s ONE in FIVE campaign and the EPAS are supporting this project in advisory and dissemination measures respectively.

IRIS (Institut de Relations internationales et stratégiques)
IRIS is launching a programme which aims at raising the awareness of European sports authorities with regard to corruption in sport. It will organise seminars on this issue in 22 countries over a period of one year. EPAS will assist the implementation of this programme and help identify seminar participants, thanks to its pan-European network of public authorities in both fields of sports and law enforcement.
