COOPERATION ON EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMMES BETWEEN NOCS
The Czech Olympic Committee Delegation led by Vice-President Roman Kumpost had a meeting with the President of the Russian Olympic Committee Stanislav Pozdnyakov and discussed the development and modernization of key areas of cooperation between two NOCs.
″Today’s negotiations are a continuation of the work that began as part of the previously signed Memorandum of Cooperation between the Russian and Czech Olympic Committees,″ said Stanislav Pozdnyakov.
″We have already discussed the practical steps to implement this document. First of all, together with Czech Olympic Committee, we are interested in implementing educational programmes based at the Russian International Olympic University (RIOU), as well as projects that are being successfully developed by the Czech side. We intend to hold a regular exchange of teachers and students. Our first steps are likely to be made in this direction. And, of course, there is interest in expanding cooperation in terms of the participation of athletes in joint competitions, as well as organising and conducting training camps for athletes and specialists both in the Russia and the Czech Republic″.
