FACILITATED ROUND TABLE DISCUSSIONS

Topics include:

  • How to create awareness and encourage submission of HALRIC pilot project applications – lessons learned and strategy onwards.
  • What role does the “accessibility barriers and thresholds” play and how can we reduce these? Good examples of RIs and/or actions that successfully lower the thresholds.
  • How do RIs in the HALRIC region complement each other
  • Access to HSC prototypes – how do we include this in the pilot projects.
