LASIGE member Carlos Duarte was nominated for the Management Committee of the soon to start COST Action Leading Platform for European Citizens, Industries, Academia and Policymakers in Media Accessibility (LEAD-ME).

This COST Action aims to help all stakeholders in the field of Media Accessibility and cross-cutting topics (e.g. AI and Interactive Technologies) in Europe to meet the legal milestones requested by the recently passed European legislation. Furthermore, it will contribute towards existing and new standards on Media Accessibility among 28 European or associated countries.
