Abstract or description

Due to the nature of the Preparatory Action Project, this Summary Report is not meant to be a scientific paper covering all details and concepts related to disability sport, nor was it able to include all kinds and varieties of disability sports or national disability sport sector aspects, information, activities, practices and contributions.

The Summary Report reflects the view of the experts involved in this project activity. By drawing conclusions and recommendations, the report shall help opening the door for a broader European dimension of disability sport with further trans-national
