EU developments in social and employment – What relevance for service providers?

Online training session

The online training session featured three sessions:

  • The European Disability Strategy (2010-2020) and  the ongoing public consultation on the mid-term review of the Strategy launched by the European Commission in December 2015.
  • The new Directive on public procurement (2014/24/EU) and its transposition process into national law (by April 2016).
  • Key findings of two of the latest analytical papers that link EU policy and practice on Employment and ICT and Assistive Technologies. Both papers can be found here.

Participants had the opportunity to share the main challenges in the provision of services with and for persons with disabilities, with a focus on the challenges that persons with disabilities face. Participants’ contribution will feed into the consultation response of EPR.

Participants also heard about the ONCE Foundation’s experience in participating in the socially responsible public procurement forum promoting the inclusion of social clauses in public procurement.
