Limited Capacity seats available

The Assistive Technologies Events at ES:GC2  will engage participants in discussing new strategies and global opportunities for influencing disability research that will benefit individuals with autism and intellectual disabilities in developed countries and low-resourced communities. The presentations will highlight the potential for positive global impact that is envisioned by the DOCTRID International Research Institute and its international partners in the EU, USA, Canada and Japan.

Three key areas will be explored in the course of the Symposium and Workshop:
1. Establishing and utilizing internationally-based collaborations to conduct Assistive Technology research using EU Horizon 2020 Funding instruments.
2. Creating a global Assistive Technologies consortium that will access and utilize new European Union research and development funding to partner in collaborative research.
3. Maximizing the role of international Assistive Technologies R&D structures including DOCTRID and AAATE, the private sector, advocacy groups and charities that can expand access to diverse networks, assess research initiatives for broader impact and advise on policy and new directions.
