Introduction and welcome. Information about the project “Developing Deaf Interpreting”.
Presentation of the results from the survey of the situation of Deaf Interpreters in Europe.

The survey aims to give an overview of the situation of Deaf Sign Language Interpreters in Europe with regards to the number of Deaf Sign Language Interpreters, training options, working conditions, organization, and legal framework. The survey is the first of its kind and does not contain accurate information from all countries in Europe. Seminar participants will be given the opportunity to comment and correct information in the report.
