Representatives of European Aquatics, European Athletics, European Gymnastics, Union Européenne de Cyclisme (online), and the European Canoe Association met today in Belgrade (Serbia) during the European Aquatics Championships, which is taking place in the Serbian capital from 10–23.

It was a very productive meeting between the leaders of these Federations to discuss potential future collaborations. The topics discussed were how to strengthen the existing partnership and potential projects of common interest related to several areas, including corporate social responsibility, education, development, digital transformation, competition formats, and access to EU funding for sport-related projects.

European Aquatics President Antonio Silva said: “It was an honour and pleasure for us to welcome our friends from other European federations here in Belgrade. This is the first step in what I am confident will be a new era of cooperation and support, which will help us develop sports projects across the continent.”
