A key outcome of the AGGIS project, the Sports Governance Observer, was launched at a seminar in Brussels that concluded the AGGIS project. The seminar entitled 'The Cballenge for Europe in the Governance of Sport' was attended by over 100 sports organisation leaders and experts.
The Sports Governance Observer is a measurement tool by which anyone with basic insight into his or her own sports federation can check the performance of the organisation within four dimensions: Transparency, democratic processes, checks & balances and solidarity. .
