Abstract

Blind and visually impaired students seldom choose to attend university technical or scientific courses. The major problems concern access to scientific documentation, to scientific software and getting advantage of attending lessons. Many solutions exist, but they are often available or known at national level. This paper introduces the @science thematic network, which aims at collecting and documenting pratices and experiences at transnational level to facilitate blind and visually impaired students to go through scientific studies at university.
