A consortium of the Educational Research Institute (Instytut Badań Edukacyjnych) and the „Your New Opportunities” Association (Stowarzyszenie „Twoje Nowe Możliwości”) completed a research project co-funded by the State Fund for the Rehabilitation of Disabled People (PFRON). The main purpose of the project was to assess the effectiveness of PFRON’s activating activities and to perform an in-depth diagnosis of the social and professional situation of higher education graduates.

The project had two research components – quantitative and qualitative. The quantitative component consisted of 1,500 interviews with disabled persons who had participated in the support programmes offered by PFRON. Higher education graduates, representatives of higher education institutions and public institutions engaged in supporting persons with disabilities participated in the qualitative component.

The report summarising the research project is available at:
