The Recent Advances in Assistive Technology and Engineering Conference (RAatE) ran successfully for over 10 years and this relaunch, under the banner of T4I (Technology for Independence), aims to reflect the evolving and innovative ways that technology can transform independence for those with disabilities.

The focus will be on best practice, innovation and service delivery. The conference will be hosted by the University of Sheffield to showcase Assistive Technology (AT) related research and service innovation across health, education, employment and daily living. It will occur at St. Mary’s Church and Conference Centre, Sheffield, on 28th November 2016.

We are delighted to welcome our plenary speaker from the Netherlands: Luc de Witte, a leading researcher in the field of assistive technologies, was Professor of Technology in Care at both Zuyd University of Applied Science and Maastricht University, He is also Director of the Centre of Expertise on Innovative Care and Technology (EIZT), a regional innovation network with around 40 partners (health care organisations, 3 universities, SME’s, local and regional governments) and recently joined CATCH.

The conference offers AT experts the opportunity to present to a unique multi-disciplinary audience and the chance to meet and share knowledge with other people working in the field. AT users can share their experiences and wants for new AT.
