Barcelona Project Meeting and Multiplier Sport Event

The project met for a third time at the start of June, 2019. We were kindly hosted by the University of Barcelona at their centre for high performance (CAR) in Sant Cugat. The meeting allowed the team to share and compare their findings from the case studies of dual career development environments (DCDE) which have been conducted over the last 12 months. The meeting also allowed the team to discuss the aspects of the DCDEs which are shared across all case studies and which lead to the effectiveness of the environments. Finally, the group began to develop the DCDE monitoring tool which will be tested and evaluated in the final study of this project. Aside from the project, the group was able to experience some of the Universities facilities and experience some of the local culture in Sant Cugat.

Alongside the 2ndday of meetings, the project team hosted a multiplier sport event at CAR on Tuesday 4th June, 2019. The event accommodated over 50 practitioners and academics from across Spain. For the first half of the day, the project team provided presentations including an overview of the Erasmus+ projects that cover dual careers, an insight into the current ecology of dual career project, and the current findings from the project including an overview of four of the partner case studies of DCDEs. The second half of the day was designated to presentations from Spanish researchers and practitioners which discusses dual career and dual career environments in the Spanish context.
