Embarking on a game-changing project or initiative that not only works but stands the test of time is like scaling a formidable mountain. The few who reach the summit become fiercely protective of their achievement.

Now, the idea of taking this very project or initiative and expanding it to international frontiers might feel like a far-off dream, a formidable challenge, or even an impossible feat. However, based on our own experiences, we’re here to say it’s entirely feasible.

Our years of tireless effort have revealed a powerful truth: the challenges in our homelands often bear a striking resemblance. Sometimes, solutions born in one corner of the world, with a dash of local finesse, can work wonders in far-flung places.

Let’s face it: Europe is grappling with the alarming surge of sedentary lifestyles, and technology has only accelerated the problem. We, the stakeholders in this industry, share a collective concern.

Those of us entrenched in the industry are well aware of the impending crisis. But here’s the call to action: we must dare to try! We can make it happen, especially if we pool our resources, learn from each other’s stumbles, celebrate the victories of those who’ve thrived, and unite our strengths.

From our perspective, this is the sole avenue to reverse the relentless deterioration we’re witnessing every day. Together, we can rise to the challenge.

That's precisely why we conceived EUSportLab, an event meticulously tailored for individuals like you who've not only discovered but also tested and proven effective solutions within the sports domain. EUSportLab offers a unique platform where you can take center stage, like in a TED X, sharing your vision with a discerning audience comprising organizations deeply engaged in the realms of sports and education. These entities are more than eager to integrate your pioneering ideas into their respective regions. EUSportLab isn't just an event; it's the catalyst for commencing your long-awaited journey towards internationalization within a secure and supportive setting. Moreover, it's a hub where you can connect with the resources needed to make this dream a reality. Our team comprehends the significance of these opportunities because, for many years, we traversed the same path, tirelessly searching for them ourselves.

Who we are?

We are L’Orma international

L’Orma international, the European department of L’ORMA (www.ormasite.it) a no-profit sport educational agency funded in 2000, working in the field of sport, education and social innovation.

Since our inception, we have been committed to designing and delivering educational and social projects in the field of sports for children, adolescents, and adults. We organize numerous training courses, work within schools, and host summer camps – all activities in which sports play a central role in a process of transformation, education, and social inclusion.

For several years now, we have also been active in the field of Europroject management, designing, writing, and implementing numerous sports projects, primarily within the Erasmus Plus Sport Program.

After many years of involvement in the Erasmus Plus SPORT Program, we now aim to specialize in providing continuity and sustainability to international projects in the sports sector that can have a high social impact. We want to ensure that all our efforts in the designing, writing, and implementation of European projects are directed towards initiatives that can endure over the years and grow over time.

Who we are

you looking for?

If you identify yourself with this description, then you are welcome to EUSport LAB 2023.

In order to ensure the smooth organization of the event, we will kindly request you to make a deposit of 100.00 euros at the time of registration.

Participation in the event is free, but as you are aware, we incur expenses and wish to plan effectively. For this reason, we will consider your registration valid only upon receipt of the deposit, which we will refund to you immediately upon your correct participation in the event. We will do everything in our power to make you feel at home, and we will give our best effort to foster synergies and virtuous and long-lasting collaborations.

If you possess these characteristics,

why should you come to EUSport LAB?

Working in this field, you’ve likely experienced moments of isolation, the challenge of finding believers in your ideas, and the relentless quest for resources to finance your vision. Not to mention the daunting task of envisioning taking your project abroad. Refining your business model, forging foreign partnerships, and securing that initial funding to initiate internationalization-all of these are critical steps, and they can feel like insurmountable obstacles without guidance and support.

That’s precisely where we step in, leveraging our extensive experience and expertise in Europroject management to transform these aspirations into reality. We’re committed to providing unwavering support. At our event, you’ll be given an exclusive platform to present your project or initiative to a receptive audience of European organizations eager to collaborate.

We won’t stop there. Expect valuable suggestions to fine-tune your project, guidance to develop project proposals in response to European calls for proposals, and exploration of alternative funding channels.

So, submit your project idea, showcase the immense value it holds, and underscore its sustainability-both in terms of project objectives and economic viability, forged over the years.

If your idea makes the top 6, you’ll unlock a realm of opportunities awaiting you.
