On the origin of…

EDUCAT, an Interreg V A 2 Seas-project. It is an abbreviation of Empowerment of Disabled People through User Co-Production of Assistive Technology. Our four main goals are:

  1. developing assistive technology adapted to the user’s needs and test it by clinical trials
  2. co-creating the assistive technology on our platform iTCH!
  3. promoting independence, improving quality of life and saving costs and time.
  4. establishing a cross-border network with all kinds of stakeholders
