EU e-Accessibility network underway.

The European Design for All e-Accessibility Network (EDeAN) is now well underway with more than 90 organisations represented already. The network was set up as part of the eEurope 2002 Action Plan, and particularly the Design for All approach that was set up to ensure that mainstream information technology is accessible to as many different groups as possible.

EDeAN was set up specifically to address the "e-Accessibility" target of "ensuring the establishment and networking of national centres of excellence in design-for-all and create recommendations for a European curriculum for designers and engineers". The network's main goals are mostly to do with providing input for the development of that Design-for-All curriculum, discuss Design-for-All issues and the organising of symposia and conferences on the accessibility topic. More widely, EDeAN aims to promote awareness of accessibility issues, and foster colloboration between accessibility specialists and educators of engineers, programmers, architects, and city planners.

Though the Taastrup, Denmark based network secretariat already has contacts with national accessibility centres in most European nations, it has room for more 'centres of excellence' in the domain, and actively solicits applications.

More information and an application form can be found on the EDeAN website.
