Recommendations and Good Practices

This booklet compiles the recommendations and good practices that were gathered based on EPFIME’s extensive research report.

The EPFIME project is a 2-year project co-funded by Erasmus+ KA3 Support to Policy reform "Support to the implementation of EHEA reforms - 2018-2020".

During this project, consortium partners and experts will examine 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.

How is this project related to MappED!?

The MappED! project was run between 2015 and 2017. As a result of that project we have the MappED! mapping tool. To date, this website and its corresponding app have been used to map the accessibility of institutions and their buildings. The EPFIME project will leverage the data collected throughout these years and will integrate it into its website. The moment the new Inclusive Mobility website will be live, it will replace the current MappED! and extend its functionalities.
