6th Annual Forum for Anti-Doping in Recreational Sport 

Wednesday 9 November 2022

Avenue des Arts 9, 1210 Saint-Josse-ten-Noode, Brussels, Belgium

The 2022 edition of the annual FAIR Forum will present the findings of the three different studies conducted and will expose how these findings are pointing towards shifts in perspective and approach when it comes to anti-doping policies at a recreational level. An exciting keynote speaker will equally be present for the occasion. Under the FAIR+ project, both Technical Expert Groups conducted the following research:

Research on recreational athletes’ use of performance enhancing substances, from the largest ever survey conducted on the topic

Research on the societal and psychological motivations behind the use of doping in recreational sport

Research and a new approach to anti-doping programmes for trainers and coaches

Conceptualised and hosted by the FAIR+ project, and its predecessor the FAIR project, both co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme), the Forum has established itself as one of the most relevant European anti-doping events, gathering experts, institutions and stakeholders to exchange on current and developing policies. The Forum, over the years, has increased the awareness of policy makers about doping in recreational sport as societal and public health concerns, to address the limited co-operation at EU level in doping policy, and to establish a network for sharing ideas and good practices among sport and anti-doping stakeholders.
