The first objective of iCARE is to train and create a new generation of researchers capable of exploiting the synergies between the different disciplines to optimize the inclusion of children with hearing impairment (4-12 yrs of age) in an oral society. This will be achieved through an international consortium of full and associated partners from academia, industry and socio-economic agencies, each with its own expertise. The proposed training consortium is unique because the partners are specialized in a variety of disciplines, both technical and non-technical, ranging from audiology, medicine, psychology and neuroscience, engineering, education, and speech and language therapy
The second objective of iCARE is to combine research and training skills across disciplines in order to acquire knowledge and develop novel remediation methods, and products that will empower children with hearing impairment, their carers and educators, to communicate in a hearing world.
