Third time’s a charm

Signfuse applied for EU funding three times.

A first opportunity appeared when our long valued customer Onno Crasborn (Nijmegen University) chased the EU call for “Technologies for Digital Content and Languages”. Onno made a very nice proposal in 2013, but unfortunately we didn’t hear from the European Union again. The project was not dismissed, nor accepted, which appears to be their way of handling project applications when their budget has run out on higher-ranked projects.

In 2015 Ulrike Zeshan (University of Central Lancashire) tried to win a call for the European Research Council (ERC) together with Signfuse, but again, we didn’t get any news from the European Union.

In 2017 Noémie Churlet (Media Pi) got us on board of a third opportunity. We applied for an Erasmus+ project. And we won!
The whole application was accepted as is. It was a relief. We’re very happy.

The project will take off this fall. The goal is to create the first dedicated e-magazine with the objective to improve the schooling of deaf pupils, and to enhance their access, participation and performance within the education system

Partners are: Association Média’Pi (France), L’Apprimerie (France), Yomma (Germany), Istituto Statale Per Sordi (Italia) and Liceul tehnologic Special (Romania).

We’re very much looking forward to executing this exciting project!
