ANED - Academic Network of European Disability Experts

This pan-European network of academics and specialists in disability policies aimed at providing the European Commission expert advice, analysis and independent scientific information on the status of disability policies in every European country, taking into account the European Disability Strategy and the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disability (CRPD). ANED, which had as scientific board Professor Mark Priestley from University of Leeds, was represented in Portugal by CIEG’s researcher Paula Campos Pinto who also integrated the ANED’s coordination center at the European level.
