The European Commission is organising its first EU Conference on Gender Equality in Sport on 3 and 4 December 2013 in Vilnius.

The conference will be a key event in the development of a new EU dimension in sport and aims to discuss coherent measures and realistic objectives on advancing gender equality between women and men in sport.

The results of the conference could influence policies and initiatives at national level as well as feed into the future Work Plan on Sport of the Council of the European Union for a formal follow up. Moreover, the results of the conference could contribute to define priorities and concrete measures on this topic in the framework of the sport chapter of the EU programme Erasmus Plus 2014-2020, leading to the implementation of concrete measures in the future.
