BRAnd Values Alignment through Dual Career
BravaDC enhances the European workplace environment to face effectively the challenges of dual career.
The primary focus of BRAVA-DC (BRAnd Values Alignment through Dual Career) is on enhancing the European workplace environment so the circumstances and challenges of dual career (DC) athletes and coaches can more effectively be accommodated.
The BRAVA-DC project aims are: 1) to structure an evidence and eminence knowledge base on dual career for employee-athletes and 2) to define and enable European guidelines which support DC in the workplace and which facilitate appropriate brand alignment strategies and CSR policies which value DC. Accordingly, the overarching aim of the BRAVA-DC project is to implement the EU Guidelines on Dual Careers of Athletes.
- Through effective leadership, management and communication to implement a project of the highest standards and efficacy that will optimise dissemination and impact of the outcomes for target stakeholders and European society.
- To synthesise extant evidence-base knowledge on the experiences, perceptions, opinions and needs of dual career (DC) employee-athlete/coach, employee-former athlete, employers of athletes/coaches, corporate DC supports, brand alignment strategies and CSR polices related to DC, thus making conclusions based on existing knowledge and identifying knowledge gaps.
- Using concept mapping technologies to collect eminence-base knowledge on the dual career (DC) working experiences, perceptions, opinions and needs of athletes, coaches and their employers (i.e. relevant corporate marketing managers (CMMs), and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSRs) managers).
