The Executive Committee of the 15th annual conference of the European Athlete Student – Dual Career Network would like to invite you to participate in this meeting to be held in Coimbra, Portugal between 12th – 14th September, 2018.
The EAS annual conference brings together experts in all fields related with the educational and sport systems to present and discuss state-of-the-art research and conceptual and political issues. The theme for the 2018 Conference is: “Establishing an effective framework in dual career”.
The 2018 Conference will include presentations on areas like the globalization, the dialectic relationship between club and high school, university sport (will be a post European University Games event – EUSA Games will be held in Coimbra in July, 2018) and sport and governance.
As in the previous EAS conferences we aim to attract many early career researchers, but also well-known experts to ensure valuable information exchange. The friendly and open nature that characterizes the EAS conference has the potential to foster future projects, collaborations and friendships. The Bengt Nybelius scholarship for young investigators is an opportunity for young scientists to have their work recognized by their peers.
The symposium venue will be held at the Museu da Ciência in the historical site of the University of Coimbra, which has been classified as World Heritage by UNESCO for its role as the centre of production of Portuguese language literature and thinking and for the universal value of its campus. The University of Coimbra was created in 1290 and is the oldest institution of higher education in Portugal. It is also one of the oldest universities in the world with more than 700 years of experience in education, training and research. Accommodation will be available within walking distance of the symposium venue as well as from the main cultural and tourist sites.
When coming to Coimbra you will experience the historical heritage of one of the oldest cities of Portugal, with its monuments and museums, but also the relaxing atmosphere of its restaurants and bars, where you can enjoy traditional Portuguese dishes and wines. If you long for the ocean, the Atlantic Portuguese coast with its white sandy beaches and seafood restaurants is only 40 km away. As well, you may also enjoy the wine tourism circuit around the city.
We hope that you will be able to join us in September 2018 for 15th EAS annual Conference.
The Local Executive Committee,
António J. Figueiredo, Conference Chair
Carlos Gonçalves, Conference Co-Chair
Liliana Moreira, Conference Co-Chair
