Athletic migration: Dual Career and qualification in sports

  • Wagner, Herbert (Principal Investigator)
  • Fuchs, Philip Xaver (Co-Investigator)

Project Details


The partnership of AMID project consists of the European Athlete as Student network (EAS) and complementary academic as well as non-academic organisations (federations, clubs, and Olympic organisations) in Austria, Germany, Finland, Slovenia, and Italy. This network a) collects and exchanges good practices across Europe, b) identifies the opportunities to improve practices and raise governance standards. These practices will be implemented (intervention phase) and systematically tested in the participating organisations including migrating athletes from multiple countries. The evaluation of exchange opportunities and best practices will provide guidelines for key stakeholders to enhance Dual Career and athlete migration across Europe.
AMID aims to expand the network, exchange the identified best practices across European policies, and involve national authorities in all participating organisations. Thus, the project will contribute to the standardisation of European education and sport measures beyond the project’s time frame and outside of the participating organisations.
