ATIS4All and ETNA are 2 EU Thematic Networks led by Technosite and ETNA respectively that have been ‘clustered’ by the EU. Together they aim to establish a reference community portal, “ATIS4all collaborative portal”, offering reliable information on ICT ATs, and R&D initiatives. The Portal will allow users to search for information on specific ICT-base AT products, open source projects or services and share their opinion
and experience. User profiles personalise the information making it more useful to the different portal users. ATIS4all will provide the community portal and ETNA a search engine to locate information from diverse national databases.

The 2 broad categories of ‘user’ and ‘developer’ are supported via 3
sections

- Market place community: An online meeting point for users, providers and key actors interested in the field of ICT ATs, inclusive solutions and related services.
- R&D community: An online meeting point for portal users and key actors interested in R&D and cutting edge technologies applied to them.
- Key actors section: A tool to find organizations relevant in thefield.

For the UK this will provide access to knowledge of a wider range of
AT products and projects. It will reduce duplication of work between
countries and foster sharing and collaboration. Users, service
providers and developers can hope to reduce costs and become more
efficient.
