What is FLAME?

FLAME stands for FLourishing in and beyond the gAME. The FLAME project aims to contribute to mental health, well-being and social-emotional development in football academies throughout Europe. The project originated from the need for more knowledge and practical tools in football academies to optimise mental health and social emotional development. 

Football academies take on a big responsibility to provide an environment for players to flourish and develop, both in and beyond the game. We want to (further) enhance the knowledge, tools and skills applied in football academies to help them create an optimal talent development environment. 

The FLAME project is an international collaborative partnership between experts, funded by an Erasmus+grant from the European Union.
