University of Granada pioneers a project to provide information about the university system to the Disabled.

University of Granada, Spain was a pioneering on organizing the inclusive Campus, a project that gives students with disability the chance to know the way university works, in order to prevent them from school dropout.

Up to now, this was only doing on a national level, but this year they have taken a step forward and they have translated it to Europe, with the name of Inclusive European Campus. This program is the result of the union of the Fundación ONCE, the University of Granada, the University of Lisbon and the Artesis-Plantijn Hogeschool (Antwerp, Belgium).

The students who have participated in this project have been chosen by several criterions, such as their academic record, especially their grade in English. The Fundación ONCE has given a grant to the participants so they can enjoy this experience for free.

There will be five Spanish, five Portuguese, and five Belgian students in every three campuses. The one in Lisbon has already taken place from July 3rd to 9th. The campus of Granada will be celebrated from July 24th to 30th, and the campus of Antwerp will be developed from August 28th to September 3rd.
