Introduced in 2000 the EHF RINCK Convention concerns the mutual recognition of standards and certificates in the field of coaches' education in handball in Europe. From the six founding nations it has developed to 40 signatory nations so far.

The major step into the future was the introduction of the EHF Master Coach Course organized by the EHF itself. The first issue was the “2012 Open EHF Master Coach and Licensing Course”, the further series took place every two years. In 2022 the next edition of such a high end education course is on offer. The course will consist of three stages and is accessible for all coaches of RINCK Convention signatory countries on level 3 (confirmed by their Member Federation).

Between the first, second and the third part of the course the participants will have to execute several tasks communicated during the 1st and 2nd Module.  During the third part of the course they will present and defend their thesis.
