Developing a standardised physical activity and sport monitoring system for Europe

Last Updated: 3/12/2018

On 18–19 January the European Union Physical Activity and Sport Monitoring System (EUPASMOS) project was launched in Budapest, Hungary. The project aims to establish a standardised system to monitor physical activity levels and sport participation across Europe. Following the initial work of a coordination team project participants are now collaborating to achieve the ambitious goal of a valid and reliable system to monitor physical activity and sport across Europe. A standard monitoring system will provide better information for countries to evaluate physical activity policies and strategies and enable more accurate comparisons of physical activity and sports participation between countries. This system will benefit all countries in the WHO European Region through the development and dissemination of a toolkit to help countries to implement a standardised system of monitoring and surveillance.
