Description of the performance / Activity:

The UEX (University of Extremadura), specifically the Schools of Industrial Engineering, has been promoting research among its final year students through TFG (final degree projects) on support product solutions for people with disabilities for several years. These works are selected and recognized through a prize promoted by several entities: SCHOOL OF INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING (UEX), JUNTA DE EXTREMADURA, APAMEX, CEXITI and IBERDROLA.
In the case of the Junta de Extremadura, it is the DG of Labor that supports this project through a nominative subsidy to the APAMEX association to support the “adaptaté” of advice on the adaptation of jobs to companies and administrations.
A video has been made that aims to make visible the winners and their projects and the work carried out by the UEX with the advice of APAMEX (association included in COCEMFE_Badajoz), but also seeks to attract more students who join the cause of improving the life of people with disabilities from their research.
