Believe and Achieve
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is the main cause of non-traumatic disability in young adults, yet the majority of those affected do not allow it to interrupt the normal course of their lives. They seek treatment and keep active. They finish their education and start projecting their future outside the fortress that MS sometimes builds around them. But in order to gain a foothold into the world beyond the MS walls they need to be employed. This is where EMSP's “Believe and Achieve” project comes in.
The main purpose of “Believe and Achieve” is to create work opportunities for young people with MS through partnerships with businesses across Europe. EMSP and its project partners will enable young adults with MS to access paid traineeships in important corporations.
“Believe and Achieve” considers the needs of both employees and employers and intends to make the difference by bringing a positive change for MS communities as well as businesses.

Multiple Sclerosis Information Dividend
MS-ID project is about information on MS and the benefit to be reaped from it. At present in Europe there is very little data gathered about MS, its incidence, who is affected by it, who is taking what drugs as treatment, how MS impacts on the lives of people who are diagnosed, what it results in for their participation in the labour market, what additional supports does the State provide and need to provide for people with MS. In order to better understand the impact of MS, we have to know the effects it brings to society at large.
