Further to Cyprus, the following 7 countries are involved in the European Union’s project on introducing the card:
Each country provides information on the benefits given by it and on the practical details for the use of the card on its land territory.
The countries have been selected following a call for proposals in 2015, aiming at supporting national projects with the intention to establish the mutually recognized European Disability Card. These countries have co-signed a Project Agreement with the European Commission.
This European Union’s project has been designed jointly by the representatives of the member states and the civil society’s organized groups, under the competence of the DG Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion High Level Group of Disability.
