EASPD is participating and coordinating in the project listed below per topics: Workforce development, Education, Person-Centered Technology, Capacity Building, Employment, Legal Capacity, and Innovation in service provisions.


Workforce development

The a4i project aims to bridge the gap between social service providers, banks and universities to help the social sector to engage skilfully with investors and meet their investment needs.

The ENhANCE Project will target the specific mismatch between the skills currently offered by nurses working in Primary Health Care (PHC) and those actually demanded by both public health care institutions and private service providers when applying innovative healthcare models centered on PHC. 


B-WISE aims to develop a European strategy to tackle the digital skills gaps in the Work Integration Social Enterprises (WISEs) sector. The project targets the skills needs of disadvantaged workers -with a distance to the labour market- their supporters (i.e. job coaches) and their managers.


IMAS aims to study the tasks, qualifications and working settings of learning and support assistants in schools in Europe and develop a common understanding and dimensionl framework to evaluate and guide the work of these assistants.


The IE+ project aims to provide decision-makers (policy-makers and education providers) with the information, training and tools that allow for evidence based policy making.

The BEYOND project aims to empower special schools and service providers supporting children with special needs, to facilitate the transition towards fully inclusive education systems.

​​​The Hi-Ability project aims promote the empowerment and the social inclusion of people with intellectual disabilities, by enhancing their abilities in the field of outdoor touring and hiking.                                     




Person-centred technology


The main objective of the ENTELIS+ project is to empower persons with educational role to support their learners and service users. 

 DDSkills aims to develop training courses for digital skills of professional caregivers so they can make better use of new technologies, and support persons with disabilities in the usage of such technologies.

Smart4Health enables citizens to manage and bridge their own health data throughout the EU and beyond, advancing own and societal health and wellbeing.

Smart4Health will enable the citizen-centred EU-EHR exchange for personalised health. This will pave the way for the full deployment of citizen-centred solutions and services in a digital single market for ellbeing and healthcare. It will provide for interoperability, complementarity and cooperativity with profiles that are currently used e.g. by Member States, regions. It will connect citizens to science and personalised health services.

Capacity building


The project aims at innovating service provision in the disability sector in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). Through an innovative mentoring training programme targeted at professionals working in managerial positions in service providing organisation, the overall objective is to produce sustainable change in service delivery in line with the UN CRPD principles in CEE countries.


Inclusive living 


The project aims to support the transition to user-centred funding models (such as Personal Budgets) in long-term care (LTC). UNIC will develop tools to help service users, service providers and mainly public authorities to implement a user-centred funding model in long-term care.


SKILLS II aims to improving skills and changing lives through self-directed support. The main purpose of the disability services is to gain social inclusion and equal citizenship for persons with disabilities.





The project aims to design an educational program with evaluation procedures that are based on CEDEFOP’s guidelines in order to approach National Accreditation Agencies with a fully developed and evaluated educational program that follows the necessary certification procedure the national agencies use while providing recommendations about alterations that should be made to make the exam procedure more accessible and effective for persons with intellectual disabilities.
