ViPi plans to attend the Com@modemdag on 25 January 2013 in Duffel, Belgium. This event brings together all stakeholders of the ViPi project, and will be an excellent place to disseminate the integrated project portal and applications.
ViPi was present at the European Day of People with Disabilities Policy Event in Brussels on 3-4 December 2012 with a dedicated booth. With over 500 attendees this event is core to reaching out to the project’s stakeholders.
We attended the EASPD policy seminar “You cared for me, I care for you: solidarity between generations and abilities” on 5 December 2012 in Brussels. This event discussed care for seniors with disabilities and looked at the conditions that allow family members of different generations to care for each other — thus making intergenerational solidarity possible.
The seminar aspired to identify the main challenges preventing intergenerational solidarity from happening and the policy conditions that need to be in place to support families in their care responsibilities. The event ensured engagement with policy makers in this discussion and phrase proposals on how to improve on the current situation and realise a society that allows people to care for each other, knowing that the right safety nets are in place.
Interview with Karel Van Isacker on the need for basic ICT and AT training for people with disabilities. This is made possible through the free outcomes of the ViPi (www.vipi-project.eu) and the ATLEC (www.atlec-project.eu) projects.
