Final ONSIDE partner meeting confirms sustainability and legacy of the project

In December 2020 the ONSIDE partners came together online for the final time to plan the final actions towards the completion of the project and confirm concrete plans for sustainability and legacy.

The ONSIDE final conference was also reviewed and seen as a great success by partners. This “International Event on Sport Officiating” gathered 250 participants from 39 countries to learn about the ONSIDE project and advance the global sport officiating agenda.

The partners are looking forward to the publication of the final outputs of the project and are certain the outputs will be of great value to various stakeholders involved in sport officiating. The ONSIDE e-learning platform and modules were also discussed including the issue of access to the e-learning after the project has ended.

The partners then turned to the issue of sustainability. The International Federation for Sport officials (IFSO) is the legacy partner of ONSIDE and will be have a key role in promoting the products in the long term. A sustainability strategic action plan was discussed and agreed to ensure long term dissemination and impact of the ONSIDE project.

The meeting ended with a celebration of the project and the three-year journey the partners have been on together. Each partner gave a testimonial about their feelings about the project both from a professional and personal point of view.
