This report is a comprehensive report based on quantitative research, compiling feedback of 1.134 responses from students with disabilities, 114 higher education institutions and 23 ministries of Education across the European Higher Education Area.
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.
Publish a policy report on existing national regulations on Inclusive Mobility.
Create a guideline on Inclusive Mobility to stimulate higher education institutions to implement a sustainable inclusive mobility strategy at institutional level.
Develop an online platform inclusivemobility.eu where everything is to be found about Inclusive Mobility for national authorities, practitioners, and students with disabilities.
Publish policy recommendations to practitioners in Higher Education across Europe on how to implement a sustainable framework on inclusive mobility at European / national / regional / institutional level.
Create a self-assessment tool for national authorities and higher education institutions to monitor policies on Inclusive Mobility around Europe and compare their own policies, knowing easily where they stand.
Research on inlcusivemobility.eu across Europe, gathering feedback and expectations from all stakeholders (students with disabilities, Higher Education Institutions, Ministries for Education).
The platform inlcusivemobility.eu is being developed based on the inputs received from all stakeholders.
A testing round will be organised with end-users to test the new Inclusive Mobility website.
Public release of the policy recommendations and the research report on Inclusive Mobility in Europe, together with a European framework on Inclusive mobility.
Public presentation of the EPFIME project and dissemination of its outcomes. The new Inclusive Mobility website will be live, replacing the current MappED! platform and extending its functionalities.

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.
