The European Research Agendas for Disability Equality (EuRADE) project, which ran in 2008 and 2009, sought to increase and enhance the input and full participation of disabled people’s organisations in future research initiatives that will improve the lives of disabled people in Europe. Funded under Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP7), this project was led by the European Disability Forum, in partnership with the University of Leeds (United Kingdom) and the University of Maastricht (The Netherlands).


EuRADE strived to enable the European Disability Forum and its member organisations to achieve the following core goals:

  • Identify and articulate the research priorities of European disabled people’s civil society organisations in the fields of disability equality and non-discrimination.
  • Gain knowledge and skills about the existing research methods and approaches used by researchers to investigate disability equality and non-discrimination.
  • Identify opportunities for and initiate larger scale collaboration with European research partners for active participation in priority areas.
