Showing the results of more than 15 months of hard work from the project partners (eight institutions from 5 countries), was a fantastic opportunity for professionals, European and State authorities to meet and exchange practical knowledge.
 
Tens of professionals attended the European Seminar, where they had the opportunity to learn:
  • Both European Union and Bulgarian priorities and actions regarding inclusive education 
  • The results of our cross-country research on best practices of VET schools regarding ADHD, 
  • Success factors stemming from our research
  • Challenges the teachers face and practical tools they can use
  • The Quality Assurance indicators and self assessment tool we developed

Teachers and related professionals discussed with us about the results and said they are eager to use the online tool and take the first steps for school self-improvement.

See the presentation of Mr. Giannakopoulos here.

Assistive Technologies 

Technology can help people with disabilities, it can change their lives. 
But usually it's expensive, for a privileged few. We are changing this.

  

Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence technology remains largely unused because it is not applied to 
solve everyday problems or because it is too expensive. Not any more.

 

e-Democracy

Democracy suffers, even in countries where the constitution is democratic.
Let us change this together, with today's tools.

 

Supporting Civil Society

Groups of citizens are changing the world. 
We supply them with free tools to help them do it better. Much better...

Over 29,000 people have benefited directly by our projects and actions!

We continue to increase our social impact and our next goal is 30.000 beneficiaries!
