G3ict participates in the 4th DREAM Network-Wide Event ESR Conference: The European Assistive Technology Ecosystem

  • Oslo, Norway
  • September 24-26, 2013
  • Venue: Voksenåsen Hotel, Oslo
This three-day event will look at the legal and social provisions governing of accessibility of goods and services in Europe and the consequences for the design and management of the assistive technology market. The conference will prompt ESRs through interacting sessions to reflect on differences between policy approaches in individual European countries, in the European Union and the United States.
 
Background:
Disability Rights Expanding Accessible Markets or DREAM is a training network for early stage researchers stemming from the EU Marie Curie Initial Training Network Funding Programme. The primary aim of DREAM is to professionally develop and educate the next generation of disability policy researchers and entrepreneurs to assist the EU and its Member States in their efforts to implement the UN CRPD at EU and Member State levels. This will involve exploring options for European Union disability law and policy reform in light of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (2006).
