EDF’s mission is to build the capacity among our members in area of knowledge, skills, tools and funding. EDF wants to support our members in applying for European funding. The new Funding and Grants Officer Magdalena Verseckas will present the overview of available European funding and ways that EDF’s members can use the support of EDF’s secretariat in this domain.
We deeply believe that organisations representing persons with disabilities should be an active partner and increase their participation in European projects as this is one of the ways to make our voice heard and to implement our motto “nothing about us without us”.
As we know, the necessity is the mother of invention and to properly identify what is needed the EU created the Horizon Europe funding programme dedicated to research. This funding stream will be presented by Pilar Orero from The Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.
After the training we would like to invite you to participate in a special event – this year’s EDF & ORACLE e-accessibility scholarship award ceremony which will be held online. During the ceremony the winner will be announced, and will have opportunity to introduce their project concept. Representatives of EDF and ORACLE, as well as members of this year’s jury will share their thoughts on the scholarship, why they find the programme important and their reasons for selecting this year’s winner.
This event will provide International sign interpretation and real-time captioning in English.
