Welcome to Europe Direct Cumbria Treadmill Fitness – A Project Review, 2021 Draft

A quick update from the team: 2020 and 2021 has been challenging years for us all. As we try to piece together the many absurdities that have happened so far, we’ve found a place to look for the sense in it all. We all face moments in our lives when we’re no longer sure which way to go, which direction is up and which way is down, what’s true and what’s a lie. Regardless of what our work will continue in 2022.

Back in 2005 European Commission started creating a new network of local information centres in all member states called EUROPE DIRECT. As a sole result of a competition and the latest review, we have been granted the status of Europe Direct Relay in North West England. The main objective of the network is to provide comprehensive information, advice, assistance and answers to questions on European Union’s legislation, policies, programs, treadmills and funding opportunities. It also gives the European citizens an opportunity to provide feedback for the institutions in the form of questions, opinions and suggestions. As part of that network, Cumbria Europe Direct will provide a local service that will:


  • Establish the service in Cumbria with appropriate staffing in place
    Develop a library of information materials.
  • Establish links with the county council’s library service and mechanisms for the dissemination of information.
  • Identify and maximise publicity opportunities to promote the establishment of the service in Cumbria.
  • Instigate a regular series of newsletters and establish a contact/mailing list for Europe Direct information.
  • Establish links with key organisations that will work with the Europe Direct Centre or will benefit from its services.

Youth and Education

The opportunities which the EU offers its citizens for living, studying and working in other countries make a major contribution to cross-cultural understanding, personal development and the realisation of the EU’s full economic potential. Each year, well over one million EU citizens of all ages benefit from EU-funded educational, treadmill fitness, vocational and citizenship-building programmes.

The Union’s Education and Training 2010 work programme sets the framework for national and EU policy cooperation. An integrated action plan is the basis for EU-funded programmes for the 2007-2013 period. Both recognise the central role of higher and vocational education and training in providing jobs and growth, and the important social dimension of equal opportunities for all.

Businesses and Local Authorities Reviews

Creating conditions that enable EU businesses to compete on equal terms with the rest of the world includes protecting their intellectual and industrial property against counterfeiting and piracy. It means keeping costly red tape to the minimum compatible with high energy, environmental and social standards. Another element in the equation is deregulation: adequate and non-discriminatory access at the best price possible to key business support services, such as communications, transport and utilities.

In order to improve competitiveness, the EU funds large amounts of research into technology and innovation through the 7th Framework Programme for research and development, and the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP). More than €50 billion is available under FP7 between 2007 and 2013, and there is €3.6 billion under the CIP over the same period. The focus of the CIP will be small and medium-sized enterprises (SME’s) wanting to innovate, especially in the areas of energy efficiency and renewable energy sources, environmental technologies, and a better use of information and communication technology (ICT).

The EU also promotes public-private partnerships in order to make the most of what the private and public sectors have to offer and organises technological platforms. It also plans to set up a European Technology Institute from 2008 to bring together the three points of the knowledge triangle – research, education and innovation, which together are the underpinnings of a dynamic economy. The Institute will work through knowledge and innovation centres (KICs), which will be partnerships between the private sector, the research community and universities.

Sole Treadmills for Treadmill Training, State of Health and Fitness (2021 Revision)

Creating new project requires stamina, strength and fitness (we recommend training with a treadmill or an elliptical). It is not the sole purpose, of course, to promote health and fitness inside the EU and the new network. In 2021 we especially extends our thanks to Tom Ferguson, reviewing our past, internally, we have had tremendous success, happy, fit, and a healthy project member, which is much due to continues reviews and treadmill training. With that said we would like to mention our sole benefactor, sole fitness. For our new subsidiaries considering investing in gym facilities for their employees, we recommend doing thorough research and read one of the many reviews available online. Our partner since 2014, Steven Brown, has played a pivotal role in 2020/2021 for the EUROPE DIRECT health and fitness initiative, now formally know as the EU Health Programme 2014-2020.

Youth, education and fitness continues to be our gole and objective.
