What would be the options and impacts of a EU Disability Card?

Open Evidence and its partners EY (lead), IRVAPP and VVA have been selected by DG EMPL to carry out a “Study supporting the Impact assessment of an EU initiative introducing the European Disability Card”.

The study will analyse the challenges faced by persons with disabilities to access key services across the EU and will assess policy options for a EU Disability Card. The study will also assess the implementation of the existing EU parking card, the challenges encountered and potential recommendations. The study will run for 10 months and will include a wide range of data collection activities including desk research, legal review, interviews, surveys, focus groups, workshops, case studies.”
