The project of a “Regional Centre for Dual Career Politics and Advocacy” has been approved in 2015 call, project number: 517640-EPP-1-2015-2-RO-SPO-SCP and responds to one of the three EU general objectives to promote and support the good governance in sport and dual career of athletes.
DC4AC project is consistent with the efforts and concerns of the European Commission for insuring a safe future to retired athletes. This project will focus on the priority of supporting the implementation of EU policy documents in the field of Dual Career: EU Guidelines on Dual Careers of Athletes and other relevant documents such as recommendations, guidelines, policy strategies etc. (e.g. EU Physical Activity Guidelines, Principles on good governance in sport).
The project intends to help talented athletes and elite athletes reconcile their sport life with education and irrespectively with the job demands, to ease their transition from sport to the labor market and make them further contribute to society development. In order to fulfil all the above the project will try to find solutions to obtain support from the national authorities, public bodies, education providers, sport organizations, business and last but not least by the athletes themselves.
With support of the European Commission, ERASMUS+ Sport funds the consortium of 6 European counties are developing a project called “Regional Centre for Dual Career Politics and Advocacy - DC4AC”.
We would like to invite all sport stakeholders in Europe to support us in the development of “Regional Centre for Dual Career Politics and Advocacy” project.
