Athletic migration: Dual Career and qualification in sports (AMID) looks to promote and support good governance in sport and Dual Careers of athletes by building a network for exchange of best practices, by developing skills and competences in Dual Career, especially addressing migrating athletes.
The insufficient support for migrating athletes is a major risk of decreased performances or drop-outs in education and sports, with the AMID project hoping to raise awareness and knowledge of the phenomenon of Dual Career and athlete migration including the current situation and challenges in the EU.
The project also hopes to build a network and develop applicable support structures for migrating athletes within the EU, including implementation and evaluation of best practices and to provide practical tools to stakeholders and feed good practices into governance.
Project partners will collect and exchange good practices across Europe and identify opportunities to improve practices and raise governance standards. These practices will be implemented and systematically tested in the participating organisations including migrating athletes from multiple countries.
AMID ultimately aims to expand its network, exchange the identified best practices across European policies, and involve national authorities in all participating organisations.
Current project partners include:
University of Salzburg (AUT)
University Sport Service Hamburg (GER)
Lapland University of Applied Sciences (FIN)
The University of Ljubljana (SLO)
University of Cassino and Southern Lazio (ITA)
European athlete as student network (MAL)
EUSA is an associated partner in the two-year project, which is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.
