MCI | The Entrepreneurial School® organised the 2nd MOB4ALL Multiplier Event in Innsbruck, Austria and took the opportunity to present the project and discuss the topic of “Inclusion & Higher Education” with two of MCI’s collaborative partners, the Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired Tyrol and Lebenshilfe Tyrol. This allowed for a very engaging dialogue between political decision-makers, disability support associations, academic and non-academic staff, and various stakeholders from the university.
Within the framework of this event, the participants had a varied day listening to the keynote speaker and former Tyrolean State Councillor of Social Affairs and Integration Gabriele Fischer and the presentation of the research project “Social Space Oriented Care of People with Disabilities” by Lukas Kerschbaumer, Head of the Bachelor’s Programme in Nonprofit, Social & Health Management at MCI.
In the subsequent panel discussion, representatives from different institutions along with two former students with disabilities shared their experiences. In the end, the participants engaged in one out of three different interactive workshops to exchange ideas and improve knowledge about the various challenges commonly faced by people with disabilities.
