2014 – 2015 EDECT: Empowerment of Disabled People through Ethics in Care and Technology
This Interreg IVA 2 Seas project was a direct result of the success of two earlier projects – Dignity in Care (DIC) in Belgium and SYSIASS.
The outcomes from these two projects identified the importance of combining ethical practice with technological developments in order to best serve the needs of disabled people, their families and their carers.
Phase 2 took the project further, with a series of four pilots testing both the wheelchair developed in the earlier SYSIASS project and the ethical training programme created during the Dignity in Care project.
These pilots took place in Canterbury Kent, Gits The Netherlands, Lille France, and Lomme Belgium and a final report was produced.
