The European project “Move” has entered the second phase. The transnational survey aiming at identifying the social demand for sport was embarked on a few days ago, the target people are the young (18-29 years) and the elderly (over 55). 600 questionnaires will be submitted in the Partner countries - Italy, Poland, Greece and Bulgaria - for the purpose of this research, which involves sportspeople and people who do not do sport activity.
The questionnaire is designed with the aim to collect data concerning what needs encourage people to practise or prevent them from practicing sport activity on a regular basis.
The questionnaire is to be finalized during the 2nd transnational meeting and will be submitted to 600 people – athletes and non-athletes, the two main categories of project beneficiaries, the young and the elderly.
Out of 600 questionnaires, 200 will be the result of the research conducted in Italy, 200 of the research conducted in Poland, 100 in Bulgaria and 100 in Greece. The sample used by the research will be those who practise and those who do not practise sport, and the questionnaire can either be filled in on line through the Move platform, or directly submitted.
Like in the previous Research, a guide will be elaborated, so as to allow all partners to collect data in a homogeneous manner for the purpose of study and data analysis.
The analysis of the collected data will be used to elaborate the first draft training unit for sport managers and operators, the key goal of the project.
On 28 and 29 September 2016 in Gdansk, Poland, the 2nd transnational meeting of the Move project partners is held. The two-day meeting focuses on finalising the definition of the research to be carried out during the following months, October, November and December 2016. The survey, on which all partners’ commitment will be dedicated with remarks and in-depth analysis during the two-day meeting, is the 2nd output foreseen by the project: It intends to analyse the motivations that lead people to practice sport and the motivations behind the choice of practising no sport at all. In brief, the intention is to examine what needs motivate and demotivate people to practice sport activities. Like in the previous research, a guide will be elaborated to allow all partners to collect data in a homogeneous way for the purpose of study and data analysis.
First General Report from National Research on the Project:

Project n° 2015-1-IT01-KA202-004704

On 24 June 2016 at "NSA VassilLevski" Studentski grad”, Sofia, the second multiplier event of the project was held. An event of dissemination and diffusion to give more visibility to the project, particularly relevant for Bulgaria who is called to elaborate the Comparative Report, the result of the analysis and study of the data emerged from national research, carried out in each partner country. The paper is the first output of the project: Competences For Activation.
On 10.06.2016 at AkademickiZwiazekSportowy, Warsaw the first multiplier event of the project took place, in which Local Administrators, Sport Managers and Sport Coaches were invited to take part. During the event, the project was outlined and discussed with the aim to receive useful feedback on sport managers and technicians’ training needs, as well as on the political strategies implemented and to be implemented in the near future, so as to contribute to enhancing sport in social processes of inclusion and participation of all people.
Report of the event
The MOVE project intends to take up the challenge launched by European policies with the new 2014-2020 programming period, and to re-launch the sport sector together with its fundamental values of inclusion, aggregation and education. The project is firmly convinced that sport implies a strong educational and social value, above all in its declination of grassroots sport.
So, it points at “coaches”. Indeed, MOVE intends to elaborate a “Training Unit” to be incorporated in the training path directed to Sport Executives and Technicians for the acquisition of socio-educational competences, a transferrable and recognizable training model, as envisaged by the European Qualifications Framework (EQF) and the European Credits in Vocational Education and Training (ECVET).

MOVE- Movement Valorize Europe- New skills for trainers comes from the awareness that amateur sport is an increasingly important economic sector in Europe and training of operators active in this field could be strategic.
Sport professionals are crucial for issues as psychophysical wellbeing of the population and social inclusion, thus almost representing a sort of “hinge” between educational, health and social systems.
The main objective of MOVE is that of designing, through a process of research and analysis, Competence Learning Units in order to strengthen strategic and cross-sectional competence dimensions (such as relational, multicultural, that of empowerment and resilience, etc.) of the different professional figures (coaches, teachers, trainers, sports managers, operators, etc.) regardless of their specific sport discipline.
For this reason, MOVE has built a partnership (Italy, Bulgaria, Greece and Poland) between national sports associations, universities and VET providers, thus including various approaches and experiences.
The main objectives of MOVE activities are:
to qualify the training offer for sport operators introducing the theme of competences;
to improve the ability of professionals to appreciate the needs of the people they work with
to enhance the potential of the sport sector to influence the wellness of people;
to contribute to the acknowledgment of titles and qualifications in Europe; and to increase trust between the different systems.
