European Network for Inclusive Higher Education
joinIN was founded by the Erasmus+ Project of the European Union “Inclusive Postsecondary Education [IPSE] Programme for Students with Intellectual Disabilities“ and was developed by several partners:
Austria: University of Education Salzburg Stefan Zweig
Germany: Catholic University of Applied Sciences Berlin
Iceland: University of Iceland
Ireland: Trinity College Dublin, University College Cork, Waterford Institute of Technology
Switzerland (as an associated partner): University of Education Zürich – Institut Unterstrass
joinIN provides a wide array of information about IPSE programmes for students and their families. Besides, this website supports the movement to develop a European network of universities by publishing practical information for professionals about current and developing programmes in Europe.
joinIN is dedicated to providing a collaborative space for consultation between higher education providers across Europe with a view to building capacity within higher education institutions to establish and deliver initiatives for students who are deemed to have an intellectual disability.
joinIN aims to become a central hub for a wide array of information about IPSE programmes for students, their families, and higher education professionals.
European State-Of-The-Art Congress on Inclusive Post-Secondary Education Programmes for Persons with Intellectual Disabilities
In October 2022 joinIN organised their first international congress located at the University of Education in Salzburg. It was a great opportunity to connect with allies and experts in the field. Many of our presenters took the extra effort and wrote up a summary of their presentations.
