Project Summary

 

Assistive Technologies and Inclusive Solutions for All (ATIS4all) is a European project aimed at improving the accessibility of assistive technology (AT) for all. Its main objective is to encourage an open discussion in order that a greater sharing of knowledge and expertise among key experts and users takes place. This is to be done while assuring the key principle that Human Rights are to be enjoyed equally by all people, including those with disabilities, the elderly and those from disadvantaged backgrounds.

 

ATIS4all, has been set up in order to work towards the creation of an environment that allows for greater inclusion of those with disabilities through the platform of information and communication technologies. It has been highlighted that access to these is often difficult and not well distributed.

 

This combined with the increasing importance of IT and technological communications in the labour market and indeed toward an improved quality of life for individuals has lead the European Platform for Rehabilitation (EPR) to identify this as a key area in terms the drive for equal opportunities and wellbeing of people with disabilities, the elderly and those from disadvantaged backgrounds.

 

The project started in January 2011, and is expected to last for three years. EPR takes part in the project consortium, along with other major European organisations and stakeholders in the field of assistive technologies and integration.

 

The ATIS4all network is very closely linked to the ETNA network (European network of leading Institutions in assistive technology and e-accessibility):

 

   * ATIS4all will focus on  building a collaborative portal to create an active online community, enhancing dialogue, sharing and participation among users, researchers and developers.

 

   * ETNA will work on the Portal’s search engine application, enabling all the stakeholders to access the data and resources available through a multilingual interface.
