Celebrating the value of Neurodiversity in the workplace
An Erasmus Plus KA2 project
About the project
NEW is a 30-month initiative involving 6 European partners working to support small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and micro-enterprises in creating more inclusive working environments that enhance the talents of neurodivergent people. The project will demonstrate how inclusive practices around neurodiversity are an asset for companies, with the potential to guide them towards a more ethical and prosperous future.
To achieve this goal, the partnership aims to:
- Raise awareness and increase knowledge among SMEs and micro companies about neurodiversity as a key asset in business
- Champion specific and regular data collection on neurodiversity at the workplace, especially in SMEs, to provide policymakers with a basis for their decision-making
- Equip business managers and staff with an appropriate set of competences, strategies and tools to introduce and practice neurodiversity at the workplace, and in this way, prevent discrimination, enhance the wellbeing of employees and benefit their organisations
The NEW project is made up of 6 partners from Italy, Austria, Bulgaria, Belgium and Ireland. See our partners page for more details on each partner.
