Atis4all european thematic network on a ts and inclusive solutions

  1. 1. Assistive Technologies and Inclusive Solutions for All José Angel Martínez Usero Project Coordinator
  2. 2. ATIS4allAssistive Technologies and Inclusive Solutions for AllThe Socio-economic problemRelevance of ATs 15% of the total EU population having disabilities (i.e. about 74 million individuals) Inclusive ICT and ATs are essential for enabling full participation in society These technologies mitigate barriers many people face in their daily life environments. The potential beneficiaries of eAccessibility are not only people with strictly defined disabilities.
  3. 3. ATIS4allAssistive Technologies and Inclusive Solutions for AllThe Socio-economic problemThe barriers of the ATs (1/2) Barriers from the market perspective: • The fragmentation caused by different national systems and policies, • Different service delivery and gaps in the AT value chain Barriers from the users perspective: • High purchasing costs of ATs for end-users • Lack of availability of product information
  4. 4. ATIS4allAssistive Technologies and Inclusive Solutions for AllThe Socio-economic problemThe barriers of the ATs (2/2) Barriers from the technological perspective: • Lack of coordination mechanisms and sharing of knowledge among AT developers lead to : • Development redundancy with similar technologies produced regionally • Lack of interoperability of mainstream ICTs and ATs • R&D projects face barriers to bringing their outcomes to the AT market
  5. 5. ATIS4allAssistive Technologies and Inclusive Solutions for AllPhilosophical base in three cornerstones Web 2.0 technologies and user participation
  6. 6. ATIS4allAssistive Technologies and Inclusive Solutions for AllPhilosophical base in three cornerstones Redefinition of the target market
  7. 7. ATIS4allAssistive Technologies and Inclusive Solutions for AllPhilosophical base in three cornerstonesFocus on Open software and cutting-edge technological trends
  8. 8. ATIS4allAssistive Technologies and Inclusive Solutions for AllSpecific objectives of ATIS4all O1. Creating a sustainable and reference European network O2. Development of the “Market place”, an online meeting point for key actors. O3. Setting up of the “R&D community”. O4. Development of a key actors search application to find organisations relevant in the field of ICT ATs. O5. Setting up the “EASTIN 2.0” portal, a reference online portal providing a seamless access to these sets of services developed by both projects.

  11. 11. ATIS4allAssistive Technologies and Inclusive Solutions for AllMain results of ATIS4allThe “Market place”Online meeting point focused on ICT ATs (whether commercial, freely downloadableor open source), inclusive solutions (accessible products and services such asaccessible maps, accessible games, etc.) and related services (delivery, training,post-sale, etc.). It contains two sections: Web 2.0 applications such as a forum for products and services, blogs, users’ ratings and comments, and other participation tools. Useful information (e.g. best practices, market fragmentation, etc), links to external sources of information , news, RSS, mailing lists and other tools for communication and dissemination.
  12. 12. ATIS4allAssistive Technologies and Inclusive Solutions for AllMain results of ATIS4allThe “R&D community”Online meeting point focused on R&D and cutting edge technologies applied tothe ICT ATs and inclusive solutions. It contains two sections: Web 2.0 applications such as a forum for R&D and cutting edge technologies, blogs, and other participation tools . Useful information on R&D and cutting edge technologies, links to external sources of information, news, RSS, mailing lists and other tools for communication and dissemination.
  13. 13. ATIS4allAssistive Technologies and Inclusive Solutions for AllMain results of ATIS4allThe “key actors search application”The “key actors search application” aims to facilitate the search of organisationsrelevant in the field of ICT ATs, inclusive solutions, and related services, and R&D andcutting edge technologies applied to them.Outcome: an online interactive directory of relevant organisations
