European Research Agendas for Disability Equality

Objective

The purpose of this action is to build the capacity of European disabled people’s organisations in civil society for participation in the Framework 7 research programme and other relevant initiatives. The support action builds capacity by stimulating participation within the domain of ‘discriminations’ (as identified in the call and a current priority area of European and global policy development). As the official umbrella organisation, representing disabled people in civil society, the European Disability Forum (EDF) is ideally placed to initiate this participation throughout the European Union and the European Research Area. The action is focused through this umbrella organisation with support provided by two expert research partners (Leeds and Maastricht Universities). The support action will: enable EDF and its European member organisations to identify and articulate the research priorities of disabled people’s organisations in civil society; provide research knowledge and skills to civil society organisations; and, identify opportunities for larger scale collaboration with European research partners in priority areas. This will be achieved by engaging civil society representatives in activities involving consultation, knowledge development and mapping over a period of 18 months.
