Serbia

Since 2009, Milos Milenkovic is Manager of International programmes in the Olympic Committee of Serbia, covering Olympic Solidarity Programmes, the Athlete Career Programme (ACP) as well as the organisation of the hospitality programmes for National Olympic Committee (NOC) delegations at the Olympic Games. In May 2015, he has been elected as the representative of the NOCs on the IOC ACP Steering Committee.

One of his first tasks within the NOC Serbia was to set up local IOC ACP. In the following months and years, together with his colleagues, he created a platform for the programme and managed to grow it by engaging further with Serbian elite athletes and other relevant stakeholders.

In 2013, he was chosen to be the IOC ACP regional coordinator for Eastern Europe & Africa. He organized conference calls and shared achievements, activities and best practices with both NOC and Adecco representatives from 10 countries.

Milos also participated in the EOC EU Office initiative 'Athletes to Business' in 2010 and 2011 which focused on the promotion of education and training in sports to facilitate (young) athletes the challenging transition into the labour market.

In 2014, ENGSO Youth (The European Non-Governmental Sports Organization) started with a project called 'Sport Employs YOUrope' which looked at youth employability in- and through sports. It was an interesting project that has enabled Milos to perceive the problem of youth unemployment from different angles.

Before his engagement with the Serbian NOC, Milos was working as head of accommodation departments for several major sporting events, including the European Youth Olympic Festival (EYOF) 2007 and Universiade in 2009.

His sports achievements include Yugoslav Junior National Champion in Rowing - Men's Eight in 1993, and Silver medalist in coxless pair and coxed four at the National Championships in 1992 and 1993.

Milos holds Master's degree in Tourism and Hospitality and he is currently enrolled in a PhD program at Belgrade's Singidunum University.
