The collaboration among the participating organizations is a precondition of the project success; the capacity of the participating organizations to activate authoring bodies, stakeholders and stockholders and to mobilize sport associations, at local, regional and national level is a good quality indicator of the project success.
The project team, through its diverse structure of partners, covers a multitude of aspects involved in the field of Dual Career programmes:
The academical institutions (CONSTANTINE THE PHILOSOPHER UNIVERSITY in Nitra, UNIVERSITÀ CATTOLICA DEL SACRO CUORE in Milan, UNIVERSITY OF PHYSICAL EDUCATION in Budapest, UNIVERSITY OF PRIMORSKA in Koper) are interested to find the best solutions to adapt their program studies allowing young athletes to follow their courses and thus targeting to attract a larger number of students as well as acquiring sport performance;
Public bodies in sport, such as the NATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR SPORT RESEARCH in Bucharest, is pursuing the idea of generating a coherent national strategy for implementing most of the EU Guidelines for Dual Career; the target group is even larger, comprising junior and senior athletes, talented and elite ones. To be mentioned that the institute is engaged in elaborating the new national strategy in the field of sport and physical activity, in line with the EU politics and strategic plans.
Non-governmental organizations as EUROPEAN INSTITUTE FOR LOCAL DEVELOPMENT in Greece, NGO MY WORLD in Bulgaria or ASOCIATIA INVENIO in Romania, which are actively working in the field of sport, physical activities, education and formation, adhered to the project with the role of raising awareness of national authorities and governing bodies to the necessity of adopting coherent measures for end-of-career athletes;
All organizations will be involved, at national level, in evaluating the needs and expectation of talented ad elite athletes, in evaluating best European practices in the domain and finding the best implementing modalities.
