Despite challenging times, the 5th edition of the annual Forum for Anti-Doping in Recreational Sport will take place on Wednesday 10th November online. The Forum will present and debate anti-doping educational programmes across recreational sport, and will also reveal and discuss the findings from the FAIR+ project’s survey. The latter focused on the use of performance enhancing drugs in recreational sport and guaranteed full anonymity for all respondents by using the Randomized Response Technique (RRT). The results seek to bring some insight into the extent of doping outside elite sport, an area of growing concern.
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 policies. Over the years, the Forum has contributed to raising the awareness of policy makers about doping in recreational sport as a societal and public health concern, and it seeks to foster further EU-level cooperation, networking and sharing of good practices and ideas.
Watch this space for further details and information regarding the Forum- to be published very soon!
