“Curricular pathways for migrants’ empowerment through Sport” focuses on employing the methodology of education through sport (ets) as a vehicle of upskilling and curricular enhancement of sport operators working on the field with disadvantaged targets with migrant background in the perspective of fostering entrepreneurship in sport by migrants.

The Work Packages:
