We look forward to see you there!

EPR and EDF are pleased to invite you to

an interactive event on the topic of co-production

What is co-production and how does it relate to empowerment?
What does co-production look like in practice?
What are the barriers to empowering co-production practices and how can they be overcome?

These are some of the questions that will be addressed during the afternoon.

EPR worked with researchers from the European Network for Independent Living to develop the concept for a study which aims to analyse good practices from EPR members in the field of co-production of services, focusing on people with disabilities.

For the study, ‘co-production’ is understood to mean equal partnership and collaboration between service providers and people using services. Co-production is about recognising that people who use services are experts in their own right, rather than passive recipients of care, and about involving them in the shaping of services. Co-production practices can be applied at all stages of service delivery – in the planning, design, delivery and evaluation of services.

The findings of the study and some examples will be presented.

Key actors representing service providers and service users will contribute to the discussions. In the spirit of co-production, all participants will be facilitated to engage in the debate and develop recommendations for next steps.

The draft programme will be published in the coming days.
This event is open to all interested stakeholders.
Registration is mandatory
