Training Athletes for Sports Events Management
Start date: Jan 1, 2016,
End date: Dec 31, 2017
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). To ensure a real euro-mediterranean dimension, TASEM has agreed a strategic partnership with academic institutions and National Olympic Committees of countries from the southern Mediterranean basin (part of the EU neighbourhood area: Algeria, Egypt, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Syria and Tunisia) that will take part of the project’s activities with funds provided by third parties. A letter of commitment ensuring the mobilisation of athletes from the southern Mediterranean basin is annexed in this proposal.
