DG Sport


The Directorate General for Education and Culture, or DG EAC, is the branch of the European Commission charged with Education, Training, Youth, Sport, and Culture.

The activities of DG EAC in the field of sport are outlined by:

      The European Union Work Plan for Sport (2014-2017)

      The White Paper for Sport

      The Communication on Developing the European Dimension in Sport.

EAC is responsible for the development of evidence based policy in the field of sport, as well as fostering cooperation, and managing initiatives in support of physical activity and sport across Europe, notably through the Erasmus+ programme.

As the executive arm of the European Union, the European Commission is held accountable to the European Parliament, namely, in the case of DG EAC, the Education and Culture Committee.
