In order to lift this platform to the next level, we need corporate sponsors who share our values and commitment.
We offer 3 standard corporate partnership packages for the Scientific Symposium “In search of Innovative Collaboration for better integration”, which can be consulted upon request. However, if those offers do not suit your needs, we are able to individually structure our corporate relationship to best meet your company’s objectives and Special Olympics needs.
If you are interested in collaborating with us, please contact the Project Manager: email@example.com
Conference Program (draft) – Coming Soon
Practical information – Coming soon
The aim of the European Symposium is to collect, share and discuss state-of-the-art management knowledge and practical experiences with regard to the community integration of people with intellectual disabilities in Eurasia and the many benefits this brings for society as a whole, and organizations in particular.
This symposium will bring into the spotlights not only state-of-the-art academic knowledge in these areas, but also a number of real-life cases presented by the people who ‘live them’ as well as perspectives from top managers and EU policy-makers.
The morning session will build on existing knowledge and present the results of recent academic research and a policy perspective on collaboration and integration through sport.
The afternoon session provides a parallel track of three themes focusing on aspects of collaboration and integration: the network surrounding the athlete, the creativity and innovation that is the result of collaborating with intellectual disabled people, and the new types of entrepreneurial initiatives on integration such as Work Integration Social Enterprises.
Furthermore, real-life cases will be explained and discussed as well as job-switch stories by experienced managers of more ‘traditional’ organizations that participated in organizations with a focus on intellectually disabled persons. The steps forward and barriers to be tackled will be discussed.
A plenary voting will guide an action list for academics as well as managers and policy makers on how to further improve collaboration and integration of intellectually disabled people through sport.
