Company Bio:

Bartiméus is committed to contribute to a good life for people with a visual impairment in all areas and phases of life. Since 1915 Bartiméus has grown into a nationwide expertise organisation that supports blind and partially sighted people. We continuously enlarge our knowledge about living with a visual impairment. We apply the latest insights using innovative resources and we educate and train our employees permanently.  

Our employees are provided with time and tools to convert new ideas into promising developments and to be involved in (scientific) research. This usually takes place in cooperation with scientific, higher educational and other research institutes. In this way, we permanently enhance our knowledge and expertise. The questions and needs of people with a visual impairment are leading for our research.   

Bartiméus also has a mission to share our knowledge with others: partners in care, teachers, municipalities, but also politicians, policy makers, employers, and so on. Anyone involved in people that are blind or partially sighted can request our advice and support. Our ultimate goal: to offer a significant contribution to the quality of life for blind and partially sighted people.
