Higher education professionals can contact ECIO via the info line with questions, advice and comments about studying with special needs.

Corona update

Educational institutions respond flexibly to the Corona crisis. Let’s not forget, in these hectic times and with the many wonderful creative solutions that are being found, to ensure that the lessons and materials are accessible to all students. By, for example, providing subtitles or directly linking speech programs to teaching materials, we can continue to teach students with special needs, without obstacles. On our site you will find a lot of information, useful tips and tools.
