EASPD's annual conference entitled : The future is now: Face-Centered Technology and Disability Empowerment which took place over the weekend of October 13/14. The conference presented some of the most important innovations in terms of advances and development of technology in the field related to people with disabilities and service providers. It also highlighted the need, on the part of organisations, for constant vigilance and the ability to adapt to modern and constantly changing conditions, always with the aim of improving the quality of their services. In this context, therefore, the EGNYA team participated in the workshops on the progress of various European projects, as well as in the meetings related to inclusion in independent living.

During the Gala Dinner events, the Innovation Awards were presented to organisations that have distinguished themselves for action, innovation and good practices in each category. We also bid farewell to EASPD founder and Secretary General Luk Zereldo and welcomed the new Secretary General Maya Doneva.

Finally, during the conference and the events, our organisation came into contact with other EASPD member organisations, thus developing our network. We exchanged know-how and good practices setting the basis for future
