Projects

R&D projects are a fundamental strategic pillar for the contribution, promotion and reinforcement of culture and quality science. These projects have national and international partners with a strong connection to the labour market.

Projects

The “Back to School” project aims to create innovative tools to support teachers working with students returning to school after their hospitalisation. International research will allow the creation of a working model with this population and will provide equal opportunities for children and young people studying in hospitals schools, as well as facilitate their adaptation in the school environment, avoiding exclusion during and after the illness.

Description

The “Back to School” project aims to create innovative tools to support teachers in hospital schools and other teachers, who work with students returning to school after hospitalization. International research will allow the creation of a working model with this population and will provide equal opportunities for children and young people studying in hospitals schools, as well as facilitate their adaptation in the school environment, avoiding exclusion during and after the illness. According to the data, one in five students has long-term health problems and some are hospitalized regularly. In the population of adolescents with chronic diseases, one of the most difficult phases is the period of hospitalization followed by the return to school. Thus, classes and educational support in the context of hospital schools are important as a form of therapy and as a precondition for their recovery. Therefore, these contexts are crucial as bridges between the hospital and the school, allowing maintenance of some “normality” in the educational process in general.

Objective

This study aims to investigate the needs of teachers working in a hospital context and the level of preparation to work with students with chronic diseases and/or special needs. It is also an objective of the same to identify the main difficulties in working with this target population, at the crossroads of cooperation and interconnection between the hospital and the school, in the process of returning to school after a period of hospitalization. As main results, it is intended to build psycho-educational materials (writing, multimedia and website) for teachers working in hospital and in schools, as well as for parents and young people.

It is a project of European collaboration that incorporates the foundations of physical literacy. It uses the known antidepressant effects of physical exercise to prevent the development of serious mental health problems in groups at-risk. The customised 6-week, tailor-made programme includes physical and mental fitness training and better self-knowledge through psychoeducation within the various groups of partner institutions.

Description

This project consists of European collaboration of partners, in support of EU strategies in the areas of social inclusion and equal opportunities.

The MBB is a practical intervention programme for students in the 3rd cycle of studies, provided by experts in their sector and advisory services. The project incorporates the fundamentals of the physical literacy model, which will bring people together to engage in combinations of physical and mental support. The MBB uses the known antidepressant effects of exercise to prevent the development of serious problems related to mental health in risk and difficult-to-access groups.

The tailor-made 6-week fitness and mental programme will include mindfulness skills training and better self-awareness through psycho-education within the various groups of partner institutions. By combining elements of group inclusivity work, challenging physical activity and psychological support tools, MBB comprehensively addresses the societal issues of social isolation and mood and stress management problems.

Objective
  • Establish a European collaboration with the objective of improving the mental and physical well-being of young people in a university environment;
  • Promote and foster social inclusion;
  • Go to meet marginalized groups, reduce social exclusion, or isolation of disadvantaged students, as well as with low levels of physical activity and moderate mental health problems;
  • Increase the participation levels of young people, particularly those who are physically inactive, ensuring that they meet the World Health Organization's recommendations for physical activity;
  • Enable young people to build social connections through physical activity.

The Fall to Play project aims to discover how to avoid injuries to the musculoskeletal system related to falls from skates, establishing strategies that promote physical integrity.

Description

Falls, in addition to causing injuries, happen across several sports. The Fall to Play project aims to establish strategies that promote the physical integrity of skating athletes, which can have serious consequences for the musculoskeletal system. Martial arts techniques may be relevant with regard to movement responses in a fall situation. Thus, this project aims to find effective technical motor solutions that prevent fractures and other serious injuries in skating athletes.

Objective

The goal is to prepare young athletes, especially beginners, to deal with appropriate forms of falling. It is intended to implement a strategy that simultaneously achieves the primary result of training the skills and competencies necessary for the learning of new technical gestures and that, secondly, it is possible to make the new techniques acquired an integral part of the skills of a skater's motor technique.

A project that will create a platform for greater exchange, understanding and collaboration in football leagues regarding the barriers that people with disabilities face in attending matches.

Description

Adding to and expanding the scope of venture initiatives, this project aims to work towards good governance in sport by supporting the development of existing NDSAs and to improve the relationship between these groups and their NAs and Leagues. The project will create a platform for greater exchange, understanding and collaboration between each NDSA and its NA and League. Football authorities will also gain an understanding of the barriers that people with disabilities face in attending matches and NDSAs will be able to increase their skills and tools to support the DSAs levels of a club in their country, so improvements can be made at a local level and in depth.

Objective

This project aims to support good governance in sport:

  • by supporting the development of 3 existing NDSAs;
  • improving the dialogue between each NDSA and its NA and League;
  • understanding the main barriers faced by people with disabilities in attending matches in each participating country;
  • by understanding whether disabled supporters feel they are valued by their league and NA;
  • creating a national strategy to improve access and inclusion for disabled viewers in each country based on feedback from people with disabilities;

in assessing the impact of collaboration between NDSAs, Leagues and NA on good governance.

The current contingency scenario affects sports organisations, regardless of the complexity of the structure. In this sense, it is increasingly necessary to understand the impact of sports projects in the community context. This project will allow measurement of this impact, as well as to know if community expectations are met.

Description

The current contingency scenario affects sports organisations, regardless of their organic complexity and structural complexity. In this sense, the role of OS is increasingly evident from the perspective of community development. Thus, perceiving the impact of sports projects in the context of the community tends to assist in more effective management. In addition, to measure the impact on the community, it can be seen whether the project's objectives are achieved and whether the expectations of the community are met.

Objective
  1. Develop a set of indicators on love.fútbol projects from the point of view of interaction with the community;
  2. Establish an analysis model that allows identifying the community's perception of love.fútbol projects;
  3. Analyse the perception of the community about the value of love.fútbol for community development;
  4. Create a compendium of best practices that allow the development of love.fútbol projects that correspond to community expectations and consequent sustainability.

With the participation of 17 European countries, the IMAGINE project seeks to understand the type of care provided by hospital health services and the quality of the neonatal experience. The results will make it possible to identify gaps and help plan a coordinated response between countries to improve the quality of care provided to mothers and new-borns.

Description

This study is based on the WHO Standards for improving the quality of maternal and new-born care in health facilities. 17 European countries participate, including Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, France, Germany, Italy, Latvia, Luxembourg, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom.

Data collection will be carried out through two online questionnaires, one for women who have given birth in a hospital and another for doctors and nurses who provide neonatal care in a hospital environment. The questions cover aspects related to the type of care provided by hospital health services; experience relating to care received; the availability of human and physical resources in the obstetrics and neonatology units; and a dimension on COVID-19. The results will make it possible to identify gaps and help plan a coordinated response between countries to improve the quality of care provided to mothers and new-borns.

Objective

Our aim is to record, analyse and describe data on the preparedness, quality and resilience of neonatal health services - with a specific focus around the time of delivery, as measured both from the perspective of women and health workers - in 17 countries in the WHO European Region, at different stages of the COVID-19 pandemic. The secondary objectives are the following (1) to develop tools and methods to measure, through rapid online surveys, the quality of MN health care in different countries and their settings and (2) establish and consolidate, through activities related to the other objectives, a research network.

Ultimately, the results will be used as a guide for the elaboration of guidelines on maternal and neonatal care in a hospital context and to disseminate the results of the project to health entities, so that they can act in an informed manner in order to achieve the WHO vision: “all pregnant women and new-borns should receive quality care during pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum”.

The EMPLOYS project aims to inform individual athletes about their employment rights and their specific situation. Athletes are expected to benefit from the results of the project, as it provides answers to urgent and important questions for them in Olympic sports.

Description

Understanding, Evaluating, and Improving Good Governance in the Employment Relations of Athletes in Olympic Sports in Europe (EMPLOYS)

The organization of work and employment relations is a central issue of social policy, but it also touches on fundamental political and legal issues of the communities. This field of activity is generally characterized by agreements, but also by actions and disputes between employers and employees and their representative bodies. Against the background of the large number of people who are active in sport, taking into account the considerable share of sport in the gross domestic product, but also taking into account the social relevance and dynamics of sport, this research gap marks a central desideratum of both social policy and academic sports research. This is the same throughout Europe which has a share of 800,000 full-time employees in the assumed field of sport.

Especially in view of the current changes in Olympic sport, it seems of great importance to fundamentally examine the field of employment relations and representation in this important sub-field of sport. With their demand for an enhanced role and independence of sports federations, Olympic athletes have recently followed demands that have been in the air for several years.

The project aims to inform individual athletes about their employment-related rights and specific situation. Athletes are expected to benefit from the results of the project, as it provides answers to urgent and important questions for them in Olympic sports. The policy recommendations resulting from the project, therefore, address the Olympic Movement in a broad sense, including all the institutions that shape the employment regulation of athletes.

Objective

The main objective of this Collaborative Partnership is to provide evidence-based information on industrial relations in sport to Sport Management Bodies, national legislators and the European Union, in order to improve the good governance of industrial relations of athletes in Olympic sports in Europe.

First, this project aims to understand the legal and socio-political situation of Olympic athletes in different national contexts of 29 states (EU member states, plus the United Kingdom and Norway). Based on this research, the project then seeks in its second dimension of evaluation current practices in national and European contexts, based on the principles of good leadership in the labour relations of athletes in Olympic sports in Europe. The final part of the project aims to improve the leadership of the labour relations of Olympic athletes. This refers to a practical and policy-making dimension of the project. Based on the best practices identified, policy recommendations are formulated.
