2 2 Workshop Instruments for Making Web Accessibility a Reality Nadine VIGOUROUX – 30 Janvier 2006 – CIté des Sciences EDeAN Objectives The European Design for All e-Accessibility Network (http://www.edean.org)http://www.edean.org Established in 2002 by the European Commission and the member states in order to : Raise the profile of Design For All (DfA) and emphasize its importance in achieving greater accessibility in the Information Society for as many people as possible ; Provide a European forum for DfA issues ; Raise awareness for DfA in the public and private sectors ; Provide input for European curricula on DfA (in accordance with the eEurope 2002 Action Plan)

3 3 Workshop Instruments for Making Web Accessibility a Reality Nadine VIGOUROUX – 30 Janvier 2006 – CIté des Sciences DfA in the Information Society Broad and multidisciplinary connotation, abstracting over different perspectives ; design (Bühler & Stepahnidis, 2004) of interactive products, services and applications of products, which have standardized interfaces of products which are easily adaptable to different users. In the Information Society, the adoption and practice of DfA, although advocated by many actors in the field, still presents significant challenges, due to the inherent characteristics of the sector, and in particular to established industry practice and curriculum for DfA.

4 4 Workshop Instruments for Making Web Accessibility a Reality Nadine VIGOUROUX – 30 Janvier 2006 – CIté des Sciences Current Challenges of DfA Introducing specific legislative measures to complement and enhance existing legislation (eEurope 2002 and 2005 action plan, Addressing and motivating the industry Effective benchmarking Providing harmonised standardisation Creating a European curriculum for DfA Addressing future research activities Increasing activities towards promoting awareness, dissemination and mainstreaming of DfA

5 5 Workshop Instruments for Making Web Accessibility a Reality Nadine VIGOUROUX – 30 Janvier 2006 – CIté des Sciences Network status expansion EDeAN is composed of National Networks, one in each European member state ; Kernel ( ) : Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, UK 7 NCCs have been appointed since January 2005 in the following countries : Czech Republic ; Estonia ; Hungary ; Lithuania ; Malta ; Slovakia ; Slovenia Currently, 157 European organizations are represented in EDeAN network ;
