Zero Project India Conference is an initiative by Zero Project, launched in collaboration with Youth4Jobs.

The Zero Project regionalized its activities to important world regions outside Europe. Following the collaboration with Fundación Descúbreme for Latin America, India became a new focus area for partnerships with established organizations and shared initiatives to remove barriers for persons with disabilities.

In September 2023, the first Zero Project India Conference took place in New Delhi, together with the organization Youth4Jobs. It connected the global network of the Zero Project with the Indian community of persons with disabilities, its ecosystems of innovators, the tech and business sectors, organizations working at the grassroots, and the public sector.
