On 21 and 22 September 2022, in Trieste, Italy, the next partner meeting of the EARLY project took place, aimed at developing information materials for early intervention for parents and close family of congenially blind children. During the meeting, the partners - organisations for visually impaired people from five European countries, including NRCB Bulgaria - presented draft versions of brochures in their national languages in the field of early intervention. Good practices were reviewed and project cooperation was established, which will result in new information materials that take into account the specificities of each participating country.
From 19 to 21 September 2022 in Trieste, Italy, was held the new meeting of the European Network for Vision Impairment Training Education & Research ENVITER, in which a team of the NRCB participated. Hosted by the Regional Rittmeyer Institute For The Blind, the so-called Blue Sky Meeting was attended by representatives of more than 15 partner organisations for visually impaired people from all over Europe. The meeting was dedicated to presenting ideas from the partners for future projects, grouping them together and forming separate working groups for each project idea with organisations willing to get involved.
