Staff at Middlesex University remain active in Erasmus+* Key Action 2 projects on a variety of topics, both as coordinators and partners. We have been successfully contributing to these multilateral educational projects under the Erasmus umbrella since their launch in 1987, helping to develop international networks and contributing to innovation in a wide range of areas.
*Middlesex University acknowledges the formal support of the European Commission for the Erasmus programme.
The aim of this project is to improve the inclusion of students with disabilities in education in the Central Asian partner countries of Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, and Kazakhstan.
On this project experts in the area of Design for All from Middlesex University are working with European Colleagues to individuals with special needs to access education, enjoy the right of participation in everyday society, and to combat discrimination by instilling awareness and acceptance in society as in line with Bologna Process and the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
The consortium wished to engage in this project because it recognises the problems and specific needs of the Central Asian partner countries in the area of inclusion; in particular, relating to persons with disabilities.
This project is being led in Middlesex by Gill Whitney with the addition of Dr. Mark Springett.
Descriptions, results, and contact information of Erasmus+ projects can be found on the Erasmus+ Project website.
