This research measures the effectiveness of three policy focuses, including youth sport (drs. Margot Ricour and promotor Veerle De Bosscher), innovation (drs. Joris Corthouts and promotor Jeroen Scheerder) and accessible sport participation (drs. Thomas De Bock, promotor Annick Willem). Critical success factors are identified that can contribute to achieving the set objectives of these policy focuses. The results of this research can support Sport Vlaanderen in guiding sport federations to achieve specific objectives.
