Analysis of the expansion of the educational offer of INEFC in the Natural Environment: implementation costs and impact on the sector and territory.
The National Institute of Physical Education of Catalonia (INEFC) had the collaboration of Itik Consulting in the assessment of the creation of a new university center of physical activity and sport located in La Seu d'Urgell.
Itik Consulting has carried out the feasibility study of the implementation of this center according to different possible locations and characteristics of the educational program. The uniqueness of this program is its adaptation to new trends in physical activity and sport, with a privileged scenario in its development: the natural environment as the main learning space.
One of the objectives of the study is the identification of different sources of income to analyse the level of economic, training and social viability of the center. For this purpose, it contemplates as a main educational offer, the university degrees and masters, with different education proposals: intensive, specialization and high performance. Apart from that, other services will be promoted such as residence or cafeteria.
A relevant point to consider is the positive assessment of the impact that these studies can have both at the level of the physical activity sector in the natural environment as well as in the territory. The economic and population dynamization thanks to the creation of a new center of physical activity and health can become an important impact in the municipality of La Seu de d’Urgell.
