For the 2020 call of Dynamic Brussels "A Young and Dynamic Region", the dpt. Topsport en Studie submitted as a coordinator a new project phase entitled "Elite sport and higher education in the Brussels-Capital Region (phase 9): Online workshops for student-athletes". The Brussels-Capital Region published the results today (October 21). We are extremely excited to announce that our project will be funded by Dynamic Brussels (€75K). The project will be led by the dpt.

The project will start in January 2021 and aims at developing online workshops to optimize the competencies of student-athletes in the Brussels-Capital Region, centered around the following topics:

  • Evaluation of dual career 'elite sport and higher education' competencies
  • Dual Career Management
  • Career Planning
  • Emotional awareness 
  • Social intelligence & Adaptability
