We will collect both best and not successful practices fro partner countries and other available resources presenting solutions implemented in European and other countries, needs to be met, problems and limitations faced, analyse them in depth, make a model support services list with adequate descriptions and conclusions and recent research, elaborate ideas for structure and organisation within the HEI system, develop the model awareness building activities that could and should be implemented in HEI systems to maximise positive impact of support services for students with disabilities and what is extremely important, we will provide testing of implementation of various solutions and elaborate methodology for their effective implementation.
