The European Network of Occupational Therapy in Higher Education was founded in 1995 within the framework of the European Union on the initiative of COTEC (Council of Occupational Therapists for the European Countries) with financial support from ERASMUS.  AOTI is currently a member of ENOTHE.

ENOTHE is a thematic network, which has been funded by the European Commission, Socrates / Erasmus programme: Thematic Network Projects since 1997. The main aim of a thematic network is to enhance quality and define and develop a European dimension within a given academic discipline, or other issues of common interest, through co-operation between university faculties or departments, academic and/or professional associations, employers and client-organisations. Such co-operation should have a lasting and widespread impact across a wide range of institutions within or between specific discipline areas.
