Kerpape, France
First Transnational Partnermeeting

The consortium of our project has met in real life for the first time. We were warmly welcomed by the team of Centre Mutualiste de Kerpape with the main objective of getting to know each other better and making the general planning for the project. We had an inspiring kick-off by getting to know the Kerpape center, learning about the fantastic initiatives of Coworkhit, and breathing in the fresh sea air.

We can't wait to continue working together towards our goal of supporting people with disabilities towards greater autonomy.

Larisa, Greece
Second Transnational Partnermeeting

We are halfway through the Impact.ability project. During this transnational meeting, we got an overview of all the tasks that the partners have done in the meantime. The partners from Sweden, Greece, Italy and Belgium put on the table feedback, learnings and inspiration gathered during the focus groups with stakeholders, beneficiaries and policy officers. This input allowed us to finalize the Quality of life impact questionnaire. We also compared digital tools to make questionnaires accessible to people with disabilities and gained inspiration on inclusiveness from local organizations in Larisa.
