MappED! Inclusive Mobility
MappED! was a social project that aimed at improving the everyday life of students with disability by creating an online platform that would provide information on support services and mobility opportunities.

Action Type: Strategic Partnerships for higher education
Aims and General Description
With the purpose of improving the mobility opportunities and experience of exchange students with disabilities, the project developed a platform that included:
- an interactive online map indicating the accessibility level of European Higher Education Institutions, campuses around Europe, city centres and much more;
- the possibility to map the accessibility level of their University, their favourite shop in town or their usual coffee shop in few clicks only;
- the ability to interact with the platform via a mobile application for smartphone and participate to the social experiment anywhere, anytime;
- information about mobility programmes, supplementary grants, support services and procedures for students with disability how to apply for a mobility period abroad.
MappED! also created a series of training events and conferences to encourage students with disability to go abroad and to foster the cooperation between Disability Office – International Relation Office – Students with disability, the three key actors to finally raise the percentage of students with disability taking part in the Erasmus+ Programme.
