IOC has selected the project "A cross-cultural study into the junior-senior transition of Olympic athletes" of doctoranda Nathalie Rosier (promotor Prof. Paul Wylleman). The project, meant to support young scientists and research groups who conduct research into the Olympic movement, will be conducted with partners from Croatia, France, Germany, Denmark, Scotland, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, the Netherlands, and England. The selection is a recognition of the value of the research conducted by the Sport psychology and Mental support (SPMB) research group at the Sport Policy and Management (SBMA) department of the VUB.
