The participants were firstly welcomed by EUSA President Mr Adam Roczek and EUSA Secretary General Mr Matjaz Pecovnik.

Mr Pecovnik then presented the EUSA activities since the start of the Coronavirus outbreak, focusing on the European Universities Games in Belgrade and the organisation of forthcoming sports and educational events.

The conclusions from the last two EUSA Executive Committee Meetings, financial impact of COVID-19 on EUSA activities and organisation of work in the EUSA Headquarters in the time of pandemic were also reported, together with information from recent meetings held between FISU and the Continental University Sports Federations.

Thereafter, the representatives of EUSA member federations presented the situation in their countries, focusing on activities of their National University Sports Associations, organisation of National University Championships and participation in the fifth edition of the European Universities Games next year in Belgrade, Serbia.
