Partner:    Partner 4 - UNIVERSITY OF THESSALY

Country:    - GREECE



The School of Physical Education & Sport Science focuses on the study of Sport and is particularly oriented towards excellence in research and practice. The improvement of the quality of research presupposes association between funding and the attainment of objectives included in policy agreements, with a view to ensuring both objectivity and international recognition. The Department closely collaborates with other university departments and Research centres in Europe, collaborations that have resulted in joint applications for research programmes. The faculty members of the Department demonstrate a remarkably rich research output, which ranks them in top positions not only among their colleagues in the Greek sport science departments, but also within the Greek academic community in general. The outcome of this activity is a high quality research-led-teaching with our undergraduate and postgraduate students being the main beneficiaries. Finally, the School has played a key role in the development of Physical Education Curricula and has been leading policy making in both Physical Education and Sport.

Specific tasks of the organization within the project:

The University of Thessaly is mainly involved in WP3 (Monitoring, Evaluation and Quality Control) which will present the Risk management and a Quality Evaluation and Monitoring Plan with the support of the rest of the partners. We will describe the potential risks and preventive and corrective measures for each action of the project, on the basis of the dashboard of the work plan. It will include mechanisms for the quality control, like inquiries to final users and qualitative indicators. At each partnership meeting the plan will be monitored and checked in order to detect deviations. Control mechanisms include internal and external monitoring measures.
