II Inclusive Campus Network conference to be held at UGR (19 Jan 2018)

INNET 2017

 

ERASMUS+: A MOBILITY PROGRAMME FOR EVERYONE — CREATING A NETWORK OF INCLUSIVE EUROPEAN UNIVERSITIES

The University of Granada, through its Vice-Rectorate for Social Responsibility, Equality and Inclusion, has now opened the registration period for participation in the II INnetCampus Granada conference. The INnetCampus programme focuses on education as a tool for ensuring equal opportunities and improving the integration of people with disabilities into labour markets.

INnetCampus Granada 2018 will present the results obtained from the first European Inclusive Campuses, and will act as a meeting point for diverse individuals and professionals who advocate for fully inclusive educational models throughout Europe and beyond.

The INnetCampus Project, developed and funded within the Erasmus+ Programme framework, gives pre-university students with disabilities the opportunity to become familiar with University institutions and gain their first international mobility experiences. In 2015, the ONCE Foundation, together with the University of Granada, the University of Lisbon and Artesis Plantijn University College Antwerp, set out to establish this pioneering European initiative.

The project aims at guaranteeing access to university education as well as at enhancing personal and professional skills among students with disabilities. The INnetCampus also strives to promote more inclusive environments and working methods within university institutions.

Venue: University of Granada. Salón de actos del complejo administrativo Triunfo. Av. del Hospicio, 1, 18012 Granada. Spain.
