This paper presents the work carried out within the HEAG framework amongst a joint European group of service providers for people with disabilities in Higher Education. Higher Education institutions from all over Europe were screened following a standardized questionnaire on their activities for students with disabilities and services provided. The gained data was published online and provides up to date information on studying in a specific country at a specific institution and has the potential to foster European exchange and students mobility even amongst students with disabilities, a group under represented in Higher Education mobility programs so far.
