Intellectual Outputs (IO)

IO1: Research study on bullying within football

  • Investigate bullying in educational contexts and with specific reference to sport and football contexts. 
  • Collect good practices, both within and outside the sport domain to integrate the project with previous experiences of the partners involved and more generally in EU. 
  • Collect major theories on bullying and on intragroup and intragroup relations. The aim of the research is to investigate theoretical factors underlying bullying with a special focus on group factors, and to review theories on intragroup and intergroup relations

IO2: Training course for football coaches

  • Design the activities by also taking into account previous experiences, conceptually merging them by creating a novel way to present them to coaches and athletes. 
  • Develop and implement an online course freely usable by all people interested in preventing bullying in and through football.
