THE “EUROMENTAL” PROJECT has been financed by the Erasmus + Program, Action Type “KA220-HED – Cooperation partnerships in higher education”. Euromental will spread over a period of 36 months.
The association among mental skills and performance enhancement is continuously highlighted by coaches and athletes, although they are not completely aware about the underpinning psychophysiological mechanisms.
Mental skill trainers must seek the autonomy of the athlete because mental preparation is part of the training process.
The project has three main goals:
- Co-build training content in sports psychology and mental preparation for elite athletes
Disseminate good practices in training and mental preparation towards stakeholders, professionals, and students in these fields
Fostering and energizing relations between European universities
The goals will be reached by developing educational courses and by organizing multiplier events. This project uses the bundled knowledge of experts on mental training and combines it with the newest ways of teaching and dissemination.
The partners are experts in specific topics as demonstrated by both their research and teaching skills, and their interventions in the field with athletes, coaches, and sports federations.
The benefits of cooperating will permit to provide students with an education on mental training for elite athletes that no single university can provide separately.
