Lessons learned and what to do

Lessons learned and what to do?

  • Successfull in attracting new users

  • Provision of services and products quite good

  • But,

  • We know a lot about ”what” and ”how”

  • And little about ”why”

  • We need (far) more evidence

  • Strong collaboration needed (international and across institutions and businesses)

  • Passivity! How do we overcome the ”non-reading-attitude” of young dyslexics?
