ECTE as a member of the SENSNET consortium is participating in ENVITER network 2017 Annual Conference in Düren, Germany. The purpose of the Annual Conference is to create an intellectual platform for professionals to share their theoretical and practical knowledge in the field of vision impairment, focusing especially on innovative methodologies, practices and tools.
Members of ENVITER are aware of growing European Unification and of the necessity for co-operation on a permanent basis within the EU; in order to implement this aim, the network will provide the vehicle for achieving the following objectives:
- To provide a network for service providers working in the field of lifelong learning with and on behalf of people with visual impairments.
- To provide a European forum for the exchange of knowledge, expertise and experience of the members of this network.
- To promote and influence good practice in the field of services for people with vision impairment.
- Jointly to conduct and support research, training and dissemination of evidence-based learning directed towards improving access to lifelong learning and other services for people with visual impairments.
To share expertise and experience in a peer-reviewed setting in order to promote the development of services and the accompanying best practices, thereby minimizing duplication of resource expenditure on service development.
