The Danish Centre for Assistive Technology is now part of The National Board of Social Services
Organizational changes offer better professional synergy within the disability field.
The Danish Centre for Assistive Technology is merging with The National Centre of Knowledge on Disabilities and Social Psychiatry in The National Board of Social Services. The purpose of the merger is to gain better synergy within The Ministry of Social Affairs and Integration's professional work in the disability field and to achieve further benefits of large-scale operations by avoiding double administration.
Through this we create the possibility of working in more holistic view on knowledge within the disability and social psychiatry, as matters concerning areas of disabilities will be included in a completely integrated way in the projects, the guidance and the dissemination of information produced by this new entity.
The Danish Centre for Assistive Technology has divisions in Aarhus and Taastrup.
The National Board of Social Services' office in Aarhus will be closed later this year and staff will be transferred to the Board's head office in Odense. This will also be the case for the employees at the Danish Centre for Assistive Technology’s division in Aarhus.
The Danish Centre for Assistive Technology employs 38 persons, and the merger will take place within the early months of 2012.
