Promoting entrepreneurship for dual career athletes

Promoting entrepreneurship for dual career athletes

EUSA and its Institute are actively promoting the dual career pathway for student athletes, and are taking part in selected initiatives supporting dual career - education and sport. The project Micro Learning Entrepreneurship for Athletes (MLEA) started in 2021, and the consortium partners met for the second meeting online on April 28.

The main objective of the project, co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union, is to promote education in and through sport and to support the implementation of the EU Guidelines on Dual Careers of Athletes with development of tailor-made, modular curriculum on entrepreneurship for athletes, enriched with gamification elements and applied micro-learning methodology, and offered as online educational micro-learning course on entrepreneurship on MLEA learning space.

Online meeting of MLEA partners

The last meeting was dedicated to the survey being created for dual career athletes, looking to develop optimal courses on entrepreneurship for sportspersons.

The official website will be launched shortly, and in the meantime, you can get more information about the project on our MLEA page.
