Objective of the Project

This project built on the past cooperation between Metropolitan University Prague (MUP) and Norges teknisk-naturvitenskapelige universitet Trondheim (NTNU) that occurred in 2008, which was also financed by EEA/Norway Grants. The universities organized a Czech-Norwegian conference about supporting the special needs of handicapped students.

The main topic of the projectwas focused on sharing handicapped graduates´ experience in transitioning to the labour market and discussing the present situation in this area. Both universities have vast experience in this field. At the beginning of project, a team of specialists from both universities was set up as an implementation team for the project. Its job was to determine the topic of the project. During the following activity, NTNU organized a topical workshop. The main part of project was an international conference held in Prague (UNIs, Ministries, etc.). During the final activity, a comprehensive publication about the project´s conclusions was published.
