The project Regional Centre for Dual Career Policies and Advocacy (DC4AC) 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 team, through its diverse structure of partners, covers a multitude of aspects involved in the field of Dual Career programmes:- the academical institutions are interested to find the best solutions to adapt their program studies allowing young athletes to follow their curses and thus targeting to attract a larger number of students as well as acquiring sport performance;- public bodies in sport, are pursuing the idea of generating a coherent national strategy for implementing most of the EU Guidelines for Dual Career; - non-governmental organizations 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.The results of the project will be usefull not only for project partners and their respective countries, but for all entities seeking to implement at local level the EU Guidelines on Dual Careers of Athletes.
