ETNA Presentation_Renzo Aldrich Presentation Transcript

  • 1. ETNA European Thematic Network on Assistive Information and Communication Technologies
    • Project Overview
    • Consortium
    • Objectives
    • Activities
  • 2. The 23 ETNA Network partners TNTU, UK ACE, UK J.GILL UK DLF, UK EASPD, EU HAC, FR FDGCO, IT CNR, IT FTK, ES CEAPAT, ES CERTH, GR THL, FI FAIDD, FI SU-DART, SE HMI, DK AAATE, EU IWKOELN, DE HZ, NL TUKE, SK JKU, AT AIAS, IT DN, GR FTB, DE
  • 3. ETNA objectives - general
    • European Web Portal on ICT-related assistive products and e-accessibility solutions
      • Unified access to databases of products, databases of components, software repositories
      • Platform to connect users, professionals, developers, researchers for sharing expertise, view, resources (to solve specific problems, to develop new solutions, to support the advancement of the ICT AT field)
  • 4. Etna objectives - specific
    • O1 > to develop an active EU-wide network of expertise and virtual community
    • O2 > to create a common language to describe AT products and accessibility solutions
    • O3 > to implement a European Web Portal
  • 5. Products Vs Components
  • 6. Prospective impact
    • make information more transparent, easily available to users
    • Help advancement of assistive solutions at various levels
      • general-purpose accessibility solutions; specialized solutions for given impairments or activities; ad-hoc solutions for complex individual cases; …
    • Facilitate users’ participation, allow users’ feedback, capture the users’ viewpoint
    • Help mainstream IT developers to create more accessible products
    • Help overcome fragmentation in the AT market.
  • 7. The TN Portal – vision ETNA ATIS4All Website of the ETNA network Website of the ATIS4All network SEARCH ENGINE (operating on the partners’ databases & repositories) COMMUNITY (market place, R&D) WEBINARS
  • 8. THE EASTIN Portal and the EASTIN search engine (operating in all EU official languages)
  • 9. A six-steps approach
    • Identify information needs
    • Identify available resources
    • Define a common method to describe products
    • Define a common method to describe components
    • Implement unified access to all resources
    • Validate / refine the Portal
    • In parallel:
    • Gradually develop the portal (m3, m12, m24, m30, m36)
    • Activate / keep running the community (webinars, forums etc)
