EASPD Standing Committee on Employment Meeting
An EASPD Standing Committee on Employment meeting took place in Belfast, Northern Ireland, on 17 June 2017, in which NASO President Georgi Georgiev took part. The event aimed to set up two new Task and Finish Groups (T&F Groups) focusing on research projects and the supported employment strategy.
The attendees discussed various ideas for developing project proposals aimed at supported employment for people with disabilities. The proposals should follow the new EASPD strategy based on three key pillars: Information, Innovation, Impact. The NASO President suggested one of the project proposals to be aimed at benchmarking the regulatory frameworks of the countries the participants came from to see their advantages and disadvantages and to use the best instruments for facilitating access to the open labour market for persons with disabilities.
