Name: 
Innovation Transfer Synergia, for the Distance and Lifelong Training of the Deaf People via ICT based Strategies, in eBusiness and New Economy
Acronym: 
Synergia

It’s a common remark that among the fields of special education there isn’t sufficient work, in the fields of lifelong and distance ICT based learning for the Deaf people. The Deaf people are a group that has very limited access in information and learning in the Internet. Very few services, that are offered through the Internet are created and designed to provide access to impaired people and can integrate the supporting technologies that these people use. (e.g. very few services are designed according to WCAG 2.0). Further more there is a lack of learning systems that provide training to deaf people, in the fields of business and economy, which is absolutely necessary for the Deaf’s people activation and participation in entrepreneurship.The main purpose of the project is the provision of distance ICT based, learning to Deaf People, concerning the learning of principles, functions and knowledge about business and economy, in order to acquire knowledge and develop skills and dexterities, for the creation of their own enterprises. The learning system, which consists of the educational scenario, the learning material and the used technological solutions, will be pedagogically, socially, culturally, and linguistically adapted and focused in the special needs of the Deaf people of every country-partner.
