Karen Petry ushered in as President

Following the latest ENSE Board Meeting on September 13th, ENSE is proud to welcome Karen Petry as its new president. Officially elected in 2015, she now begins her two-year term as ENSE president.

Karen Petry is Deputy Head of the Institute of European Sports Development and Leisure Studies at the renowned German Sports University and has been involved in the field of European Sport for nearly 30 years. Over that time, her work has largely focused on the issues of sport education, sport employment and sport-for-development.

“I am very glad about the trust that has been given to me and during my term I would like to implement some innovative European projects in the area of curriculum development. The beginning is the three years EDU PACT project (2018-2020) supported by the ERASMUS+ programme. The aim is the development of modules for intercultural learning in the PE and Coach education in five different countries” said Karen Petry following the board meeting.

At the meeting, Thomas Skovgaard of Denmark was also elected as president for the period starting 2019. In addition, three new board members also join ENSE: Michael Bronikowski, Daniela Caporossi and Susana Carla Alves Franco.
