The LOVEDISTANCE project wants to contribute to improving the access and quality of inclusive higher education for minority ethnic groups, women in disadvantaged situations and in peripheral areas, disabled students, in Israel and Georgia by supporting institutional capacities through reinforcement and the provision of student support services in both countries. It is developed with partners from Georgia, Israel, Portugal, Spain and Romania.

The project also aims to improve access to education inside and outside the classroom (and the curricular offer) thanks to the development of a digital learning environment. Strengthening the academic skills of the students, it is about transferring good practices and experiences for the design of virtual learning environments, one of the main tasks of FUNIBER in the project.

The project aims to raise awareness of higher education accessibility issues within Israel and Georgia, as well as the need to ensure the long-term impact of the project, for the benefit of vulnerable women and ethnic minority groups.
