The project is dedicated to the area of data-driven and evidence-based policy development in the field of sports funding systems for children and young people in Austria. Using a transdisciplinary research approach, a common understanding of the environment is developed, modelled and translated into an agent-based simulation. Using this simulation, appropriate scenarios can then be simulated and evaluated. The results of the project contribute not only to the optimisation of the previously outlined sports funding system, but also to an understanding and procedures how agent-based models can be used for evidence-based policy design in Austria and which technical and organisational measures are necessary for this. The DG-R/SP1-ABM project has received funding from the European Union’s Structural Reform Support Programme (SRSP) under grant agreement no. GA2020/023.
