The Support Centre Inclusive Higher Education (SIHO), the Flemish Ministry for Education and Training and the EPFIME project partners are pleased to invite you to the Inclusive Mobility Webinar ‘Making mobility programmes more inclusive for students with disabilities’ that will be held online on 9 November 2020, 14.00 - 15.30 CET.

The webinar is part of the two-years project 'Establishing a thought-out Policy Framework for Inclusive Mobility across Europe (EPFIME project) funded by the Erasmus+ programme under the call “KA3: Support to the implementation of European Higher Education Area (EHEA) reforms”.

During this project, consortium partners and experts examined in-depth the needs and expectations on inclusive mobility of national authorities, students with disabilities and higher education institutions across Europe, while focusing on how national authorities and higher education institutions can collaborate more strongly to ensure the quality and the transferability of support services for both incoming and outgoing students with disabilities in exchange programmes. The online surveys gathered 1,134 responses from students with disabilities, 114 higher education institutions and 23 ministries of Education across EHEA.

During the webinar, participants will have the opportunity to learn about the research findings, as well as discover the policy recommendations and good practices identified through the research. The guest speakers for this event will be:
