Abstract
Our team will: accomplish project's objectives concerning Portugueses Sign Language (LGP); participate in project meetings; collaborate in the evaluation of the works; perform the due reports, tasks and products, contributing to achieve project's overall goals. We aim to play a significant role according to our expertise and experience intending to encourage the promotion of mobility, dissemination and valorisation activities of all partners.
Our institution is attended by deaf students (Master, Ph.D) that will work as deaf researchers on the area of Sign Language. The team will collaborate with Deaf Community, CED-JRP (institution of deaf vocational education), the Catholic University of Portugal (Linguistics of Sign Language), promoting the active participation and valorisation of deaf trainees and trainers, and involving institutions/organisations (schools and others) that link the educational field and the worklife.
