December 2017

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

In 2017 EAS had a challenging year, full of fruitful partnerships with the European Parliament, the European Commission, the Council of Europe, EUSA and FISU. Furthermore, EAS actively promoted worldwide the European dual career values and expanded with new International Members.

We are looking forward to new and exciting opportunities in 2018, being involved in two EU-funded projects: EMPATIA focused on a dual career educational programme for parents, and AMID focused on the migrating athletes.  Furthermore, EAS will be always available to provide support to other projects seeking for cooperation.

To discuss key issues on education for athletes, to disseminate information on best practices, to promote cooperation and research, and to renovate our commitment in EAS, all of you are invited to attend the 15th Annual Conference of EAS to be held at the University of Coimbra, Portugal, next September 12-14, 2018.

To strengthen our efforts in dual career, we invite universities, high schools, sport organizations, and policy makers to renew the EAS membership for 2018 through the link:  http://www.dualcareer.eu/membership/

The Executive Board of EAS wishes you a 2018 full of happiness, peace, and success in helping athletes pursuing their sport and academic careers. We also strongly encourage you to be proactive in the recruitment of new EAS members.

May the spirit of the season and of dual career be upon you and your family!

The Executive Board of EAS
