The ATHENA (Bringing Accessibility and Design for All into Higher Education Curricula) project officially kicked off with a successful meeting held in Brno, Czech Republic. The project is funded by the European Commission through the Erasmus+ programme and will run for 30 months. The Autonomous University of Barcelona is a partner of the project through the TransMedia Catalonia research group, led by Dr. Anna Matamala from the Department of Translation and Interpreting and East Asian Studies.
The meeting brought together project partners from across multiple institutions to collaborate on developing a set of recommendations on how to integrate accessibility and design for all into the HE curricula. The ATHENA project aims to support the Higher Education sector in becoming more interconnected, innovative and inclusive.
The European Disability Forum, coordinator of the project, and the partners: Johannes Kepler University Linz, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, European University Cyprus, EURASHE and Masaryk University participated in the meeting. The participants discussed project goals, timelines, and key milestones and made important decisions that will guide the modus operandi in the following months.
The team is truly motivated to deliver results that will drive progress and improve lives. This one-and-a-half-day meeting was the first of many that will be held to ensure the successful completion of this project.
