B-WISER Erasmus+ project kicked-off in Verona


Consortium website

On 25-26 January, Schuman Associates travelled to Verona, Italy, to take part to the kick-off meeting of B-WISER - “Be a Winner In Sport & Employment before and after athletic Retirement”, a brand-new EU project funded under ERASMUS+ Sport.


The project, coordinated by the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB), brings together a wide range of stakeholders that includes universities, Olympic and Paralympic national committees, elite sport and career support providers, employment and HR management experts as well as Adecco Group’s Athletic Career Programme advisers from 6 different Member States.

The main goal of B-WISER is to provide EU Member States with data, tools and best practices that would enable them to enhance elite and former elite athletes’ employability and employment during different stages of their careers. Schuman Associates’ role is to assist and support the coordinator on all financial and administrative aspects of the project relevant to ensuring the highest quality and an effective communication with external stakeholders.

B-WISER will last for 24 months. Updates about the project’s activities will be published on a dedicated website that will soon be launched. The project is also active on Twitter (@Bwiser_DC) and on other social media.
