The project OPPORTUNITY is an initiative of nine organizations representing different sectors (sport, culture and education) aimed at fostering social inclusion of people with intellectual disabilities and gender equality within physical activity via TSG scenarios. Within the project implementation, Project Partners plan to develop a Practical Interventional Methodology including six scenarios of applying TSG as a tool of fostering social inclusion of people with intellectual disabilities and gender equality within formal and nonformal education environments. The Methodology will be disseminated via developed Massive Open Online Course for sport coaches and educators and tested within implementation of TSG Pilot Inclusive actions in seven countries. Social impact of the project will be evaluated and validated by academic project partners and supported by developed digital tool (Mobile App) for collecting evidence and its preliminary analysis. Developed and validated Methodology can be used further by any sport or educational organization interested in applying TSG as a tool for fostering social inclusion and gender equality.
Since the beginning of the 21st century, the “good” governance has become a must when sports organisations are facing cases of corruption, doping, match fixing and mismanagement.
The overall objective of this project is to create a governance and management tool to analyse, compare and assist European sports organizations (ESO) to manage them in a more efficient and transparent way.
The project tackles 5 gaps identified by ESO managers and the European Commission:
1. Practical Tool,
2. Objective indicators,
3. Integrated model,
4. Transparency and Open Data,
5. Risk Management.
The main objective of TASEM (Training Athletes for Sports Events Management) project is to promote and support dual careers for athletes by setting up a transnational network of stakeholders that will develop a platform for the training of athletes in the management and organization of sport events, hence contributing to their employability.
Through the collaboration of a transnational partnership comprised of 15 partners covering 9 countries, the project will conceive and develop a Dual Career Training Programme In Sports Events Management (TPISEM), delivered by the academic organizations integrated in the consortium and targeting 30 athletes and 15 coaches affiliated to the Olympic Committees and National Federations involved.
Thus, the partnership brings together a range of key stakeholders jointly working for the strategic development of new educational and training opportunities for athletes in the field of sport management, notably around sports events, which will also benefit from the programme and develop a greater social legacy.
The project will focus on the euro-mediterrenean region, making the most of the Mediterranean Games to be hold in the city of Tarragona in 2017 (running from 30th June to 9th July 2017).
