Horizon 2020 ‘could do more for disabled’

Better provisions are needed for disabled researchers in Horizon 2020, according to an article co-written by French MEP Catherine Trautmann and two authorities on disability issues. According to the article, the European Disability Forum has said, in discussions on Horizon 2020, that disabled persons do not have equal access to European research programmes. The authors said that providing equal access “implies allowing 100 per cent funding for organisations of persons with disabilities participating in research projects, reasonable accommodation in research policy and programmes, as well as additional funding to cover all disability-related costs”.
