Practical pilot experience related to the creation and implementation of a new European Disability Card, developed by the European Commission, implemented in eight Member States of the EU. With the aim to provide persons with disabilities with access to various benefits in culture, leisure or sports mainly in the form of price reduction, free entries and free services. Based on the principle of mutual recognition of disabilities status, the card allows persons with disabilities when travelling to or from other EUMS, to show that they have a certified disability status in their home Member State. Persons with disabilities were involved and worked with national authorities during the process of elaboration of the card.
