International Funded Collaborative Project

Project Title: DIVERASIA – Embracing diversity in ASIA through the adoption of Inclusive Open Practices (Project No.: 618615-EPP-1-2020-1-UK-EPPKA2-CBHE-JP)

Project Duration: 15 Jan 2021 – 14 Jan 2024

Funding Agency: Erasmus + Programme of the European Union

Scheme: Capacity Building in Higher Education International Bilateral Co-operation

Grant Amount: €1000000 [For IIT Bhubaneswar- €97046]


This project aims to tackle this issue by making accessible HE OERs (Open Education Resources) and MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses), and personalization using AI (Artificial Intelligence), that will enable better provision of open distance learning for those that experience architectural barriers. DIVERSASIA will build capacity of 2 HEIs (Higher Education Institutions) in India and 2 HEIs in Bangladesh to integrate these students that have disabilities, using know-how and an inclusive education toolkit developed by the project partners from the United Kingdom, Bulgaria, Belgium, Latvia, Turkey and Serbia.
