EPR and the University Rehabilitation Institute (URI) jointly organised an event on how training and employment services for people with a disability had been adapted during the COVID-19 pandemic – what are the challenges and lessons learnt? There were presentations of challenges of service provision under COVID19 and how services were adapted in Slovenia and beyond.
This was an opportunity to share experiences and good practices from across Europe, as well as what the EU was doing on this topic. Discussions and recommendations were shared from participants to policymakers.
