May 3, 2007

IBM and K.U.Leuven concluded a partnership agreement on further development of the university’s facilities for students and staff with disabilities, since both organisations are great proponents of an equal opportunity policy and have been pursuing an active diversity policy for years. The area of collaboration is dyslexia and blindness. Together with specialists from K.U.Leuven, IBM will be investigating a number of software packages with the cooperation of their suppliers. You can find some of this equipment in the library ETEW and in other university libraries of the K.U.Leuven.
