Access to Technologies

This working group works to ensure all citizens can benefit from the benefits of new technologies


Access to technologies and to information is a pre-condition of digital inclusion. 

The current e-Inclusion WG should broaden its scope and develop themes like access to technologies and to information, working to lose the gap between more and less technology advanced cities in Europe. 

Web accessibility means that people with disabilities can perceive, understand, navigate and interact with the Web, and that they can contribute to the Web. But Web Accessibility is broader (e.g. including elder citizens). 

Objectives:

  • informing members about relevant EU funding opportunities and providing support for developing project bids within relevant programmes (e.g. ICT Policy Support Programme or Life Long Learning Programme)

  • supporting the local adoption of the Digital Agenda for Europe

  • collaborating with other e-Inclusion networks

  • sharing innovative use of digital technologies

  • documenting digital inclusion projects including case studies
