DfA@eInclusion -http://www.dfaei.org/index.html

The Coordination Action DfA@eInclusion is a project funded by the European Commission, under the Information Society Technologies Programme, in the context of FP6. The project runs from 1/1/2007 to 31/12/2009.

The DfA@eInclusion Coordination Action (CA) aims to contribute towards the advancement of eInclusion in Europe through fostering design for all. Towards this end, DfA@eInclusion will continue, extend and enhance previous efforts targeted to the creation of a sound Design for All (DfA) interdisciplinary theoretical framework of reference and a set of proven engineering practices, by addressing the following strategic objectives:

  • Support to existing European initiatives to promote Design for All and in particular the European Design for All eAccessibility Network (EDeAN);
  • Enhancement of existing partnerships between academic, research, user, and industrial communities to promote e-inclusion through adopting and promoting effective DfA practices;
  • Facilitation of DfA knowledge spillovers across industry sectors and communities through appropriate mechanisms for knowledge transfer;
  • Support the mainstreaming of accessibility in IST products and services through a series of dissemination activities.
