TRANSFER OF KNOWLEDGE During the Games, YOGINN 2012 also provides the implementation of the transfer of knowledge and the IOC Observer Programme. The idea is tooffer future Games organisers, as well as potentialbid cities, a living and learning experience of the Winter YOG operations. A four-day programme willinclude seminars on topics such as workforce, YOV operations, sports, Games services and Culture and Education Programme (CEP) activities.Additional venue visits in Innsbruck and Seefeld are also planned. As a result of a "wider approach", an additionalObserver Programme will give organisers of non-Olympic sporting events, university students andresearchers the opportunity to participate and lookbehind the scenes of the Games.Finally, all the research results will be broughttogether and made public. A Symposium at theDepartment of Sports Science is planned for theautumn of 2012 to present and discuss the studiesrelated to the YOG in Innsbruck and assess whethertargets have been achieved. Innsbruck's expertise in hosting winter sportsevents as well as its modern youth culture willcertainly facilitate the delivery of a truly innovativeOlympic event. The Innsbruck University communityis seizing this unique opportunity for research and analysis, which will not only provide valuable and useful information to all stakeholdersinvolved but will also help to contribute to a YOG legacy. ?OLYMPIC REVIEW59Martin Schnitzer is currentlyundertaking his PhD in SportScience at the University ofInnsbruck and is the founder ofthe Innsbruck 2012 YouthOlympic Games Laboratory forYouth and Innovation (YOGINN2012).
