The project aims to connect a pool of 9 400 dual career athletes across 9 European countries with 45 researchers and lead practitioners to define a set of key competences for a successful dual career.
The project “Gold in Education and Elite Sport” (GEES) is funded by the European Union’s Erasmus + Sport Program.
It involves a consortium of internationally renowned dual career researchers and practitioners. Nine countries from the North, East, South and West of Europe contribute through institutions such as Universities, Sports Institutes or National Olympic Committees.
The aim of GEES is to boost athletes’ employability through the optimization of their competences and the development of the services supporting them.
