Feel the View - collaboration with VIEWS Italy and Ford

So many of us who have a visual impairment must rely on descriptions from others and our own imaginations when we want to know about the world around us, but could this be changing?

VIEWS Italy have been working with global car manufacturer Ford to develop a new technology that enables blind people to read a landscape through their fingertips.

“Feel the View” is a device that fits on a car window and which uses haptic technology to translate an image of the landscape into a tactile format.

First European Education Summit, Brussels 25/01/2018

With 450 participants, 50 speakers and 22 Ministers present, there was a sense that this summit was the result of a lot of hard work, and that everyone was keen to make the most of the opportunity. The theme of the summit was to lay the foundations of the European Education Area – a strategy aimed at creating an education system that is inclusive, innovative and based on common European values.
