The ENOSS Conference 2021 has found its home: The virtual event will be hosted by Sportlycée Luxembourg, supported by TW1N.

Since their EU Presidency in 2015, Luxembourg has made impressive steps forward in their structural development of athletes support services. As a fundamental puzzle piece of the Luxembourgish dual career system, the Sportlycée is a public sport school with the mission to help talented athletes combine sport and education on secondary level. The national programme is run in cooperation with sport federations and the Federal Ministry of Sport.

Sportlycée Luxembourg key facts

    • 400 student-athletes from 20 different sport disciplines (national federations)
    • 50 teachers working together with 60 national sport coaches
    • Boarding school
    • Large offer of talent support services: dual career counselling, sport psychological support, nutrition counselling, special service to assist student-athletes to manage their periods of absence from school due to competitions or training camps

The European dimension

Sportlycée Luxembourg has a strong ambition to continuously innovate its dual career environment. Bringing in European expertise is seen as a key factor for further development within the institution. Consequently, director Pascal Schaul explains the school’s motives to host the ENOSS Conference 2021:

Having been one of the founding members of Benelux in 1944, of the UN in 1945, of NATO in 1948 and of the Council of Europe in 1948, Luxembourg became one of the six founding members of the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC), which would itself evolve to become the European Union we know today. The continuous engagement in the context of these historical milestones in the creation and the development of the European idea are part of the DNA of Luxembourg. Since the creation of the Sportlycée in 2012, the exchange of best practices on a European level helped us develop our school and increase the quality of our dual career services. Being inspired by the success and the positive dynamics of the first annual conference of ENOSS held in Berlin in 2019, we are looking forward to contribute to the development of the European Network of Sport Schools by hosting the second annual conference. We strongly believe that there are a lot of things to learn from each other which will be beneficial for the student-athletes from all across Europe.
