The project is developed in the framework of the Erasmus+ KA2: Strategic partnerships.
Relevant UNICA working group: Equal Opportunities, International Relations Officers
Coordinator: Erasmus Student Network
UNICA's role: Dissemination.
The project builds on the ExchangeAbility:Fostering Mobility of Students with Disabilities (coordinated by UNICA between 2010 and 2011) and MapAbility projects and aims at creating an interactive and mobile-ready map of accessible Universities around Europe. In a pilot project carried out by the Erasmus Student Network in 2014, a total of 217 European Higher Education Institutions were mapped. The MappED! project will intend to encourage students with disabilities to experience an exchange period abroad by informing them about the level of accessibility of buildings, everyday-life venues in the campus surroundings, public transport, as well as support services offered by each Higher Education Institution.
