European Commission launches European Accessibility Resource Centre


As part of its Strategy for the Rights of Persons with Disabilities 2021-2030, the European Commission has launched the European Accessibility Resource Centre (AccessibleEU) to increase coherence in accessibility policies and facilitate access to relevant knowledge. AccessibleEU is intended as a common European one-stop-shop on accessibility offering experience, knowledge and practical skills for a range of actors including policymakers, legislators and the representatives of accessibility beneficiaries.

Its focus will be on training, raising awareness, disseminating good practices, promoting the development of standards on accessibility, as well as managing knowledge and mutual learning among public, for-profit and civil society actors. Finally, AccessibleEU will connect dispersed knowledge, to support the obligation of transposing EU legislation, creating a cross-European community of practice of accessibility professionals.
