Carlos Duarte, LASIGE integrated member, participated in the last online meeting of the Web Accessibility Initiative Communities of Practice (WAI-CooP), an H2020 project, on the 14th of November 2023.
This event provided an overview of the WAI-CooP project team’s work and resources developed so far. With the European Accessibility Act on the horizon, the researchers also looked at the future of digital accessibility standards and the support available for the implementation of digital accessibility in the private sector.
Expert speakers from the digital accessibility community joined the panelists from the disability community and the European Commission and discussed with online participants.
This online event was open to all: practitioners from public authorities or the private sector; persons with disabilities; researchers; product or service providers; training providers, NGOs, as well as policy makers.
