DFG and SNF Grants for Project in Sport Economics

18.11.2015 – Researchers of the Universities of Tuebingen (Tim Pawlowski) and St. Gallen (Michael Lechner) successfully applied for a grant provided by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNF) in the D-A-CH Lead Agency Process (Lead Agency: DFG).

The project on "Labour market effects of sports related public expenditures" intends to shed light on the causal relations between sports related public expenditures, sports participation and its supposed beneficial effects on individual labour market success. The project is based on the previous works of the researchers related to the effects of sports participation and the financing of sports. Preliminary results are available on request.

In line with the project’s topic the 20th Conference of the German Association of Sport Economics and Sport Management will focus on "Sport labour economics" and will be hosted by the University of Tuebingen (Department of Sport Economics, Sport Management & Media Research) on May 13th and 14th 2016.
