Rectors Conference

The European Universities Games are being organized by the European University Sport Association and national university sport associations every two years in different European cities, with the goal of promoting friendly competition through multi-sports events, facilitating friendship and companionship between students and universities, promoting unity and tolerance, as well as promoting the quality of students’ standard of life.

Rijeka’s multicultural Mediterranean style and Zagreb’s cultural and sports tradition will serve as a frame for the 3rd European Universities Games in 2016. In the period between July 12 and July 25 in 2016, universities of Rijeka and Zagreb will host over 5000 participants, students of more than 300 universities from 45 European countries. Competitions will be held in the highest ever number of sports – 21, to be exact: badminton, bridge, futsal, golf, judo, karate, basketball and basketball 3v3, football, chess, sport climbing, table tennis, para – table tennis, taekwondo, tennis, volleyball, beach volleyball, swimming and para-swimming, rugby 7, handball, waterpolo and rowing. We are especially proud to announce that, for the first time, sport competitions for students with disabilities, will be held.

As a part of the European Universities Games, a Rectors’ Conference will be held from July 12 to July 13 at the University of Rijeka, primarily focused on university sports, with special emphasis on dual careers for student athletes. With this Rectors’ Conference we would like to gather the heads of European universities in order to discuss the state of, as well as options for the development of sports at the universities and the status of student athletes in higher education. Our aim is to exchange ideas, experiences and examples of good practice in various European and Northern American universities which have a developed system of dual careers for student athletes. It is our hope that the participants will adopt a joint Memorandum of understanding, by which they will declare a common stance to serve as a foundation for future action on the question of dual careers for student athletes and university sports.
