Bridging the Gap Between Museums and Individuals with Visual Impairments


The proposed project BaGMIVI (Bridging the Gap Between Museums and Individuals with Visual Impairments) was approved by the Erasmus+ Programme in relation to Key Action 2. Specifically, 12 formal and 4 silent partners constitute the consortium of this project. Four of the 12 formal partners are universities (University of Thessaly-UTH, Sofia University-SU, University Babes Bolyai-UBB, and Eotvos Lorand University-ELTE), three are non-profit non-governmental organisations (i.e the International Council for Education and Rehabilitation of people with Visual Impairment-ICEVI-Europe, the Bulgarian Association for Education of Visually Impaired Children- BAOZZD, and the European Blind Union-EBU), four are museums [one archaeological (Greece), two galleries (Hungary & Bulgaria) and one ethnographic-(Romania)], and one is an IT Company. The silent partners are special schools for the blind and the contact persons of the Universities are all experts in the education and rehabilitation of the blind and visually impaired.
