The FORTUNE project is a EU sponsored project with the objective of developing a concept for user participation in R&D, based on the concept of true partnership. FORTUNE intends to bridge the gap between end users with disabilities, their organisations and the R&D milieu.
The users are representatives of organisations of disabled people, to ensure support and strengthen their participation. A curriculum to train users has been developed and study materials has been elaborated.
Disabled users have been trained and then introduced to ongoing R&D projects, to evaluate the validity of the concept.
