European Internet Inclusion Initiative project – October 22 , 2014

Invitation to workshop on accessibility monitoring

Learn more about the national approaches towards accessibility in The Netherlands and Iceland. Join the Discussion on how to make accessibility monitoring work!

All Memberstates will be expected to implement the proposed Directive on the accessibility of public sector bodies. Monitoring is an important driver for accessibility improvements. The focus of the workshop will therefore be on the prerequisites of successfully implementing monitoring tools in local policies.

The workshop is specially organised for policy makers in the field of accessibility and people interested in the topic. You are kindly invited to join our discussion and to share your experience and thoughts.

The EIII-workshop will take place on October 27th on the ICEGOV grounds.

Please contact merel.heijke@kinggemeenten.nl for more information on the EIII policy support work.
