CoSMoS (Conseil Social du Mouvement Sportif) is a French employer organisation of 4000 members, mainly representative in the not-for-profit and professional sport.

In France, the social dialogue in the sport sector is quite recent, CoSMoS had been created in 1997. Social partners (CoSMoS, CNEA, CFDT, CFTC, FO, FNASS, CNES, CGC) signed in July 2005 the National Collective Agreement : "la Convention Collective Nationale du Sport". Its field is large, as it includes the not-for-profit sport and the professional sport.

But, there are some other collective agreements signed in the sport sector, such as:
the "professional football Charter" (signed in 1973),
"the horse riding centres" (in 1975),
the "Golf Collective Agreement" (in 1989).

CoSMoS did not sign those collective agreements, because its representativeness is available only on the field of the NCA for the entire sport. So, by its involvement at the European level, CoSMoS affirms its identity as a social partner.

The main motivation of CoSMoS is to share experiences of social dialogue in the sport sector with other countries of the European Union.
