As part of the project, five Specialized Resource Centers will be created in five universities throughout Romania. Representatives from Special Olympics Romania, Special Olympics Switzerland, the University of Lausanne and the partner institutions particiated in theoretical and practical sessions as well as visits to institutions, centers, and foundations that have educational, sports and social activities for persons with disabilities.
