First MyAccessible.EU expert workshop

CAP4Access (MyAccessible.EU) invites you to our first international expert workshop during the 5th International Congress on Tourism for All in Madrid on 23 September, 2015

The 5th International Congress on Tourism for All will be held in Madrid from September 23 to 25. The first CAP4Access international expert workshop will be held during this important event for the accessibility community in Europa and beyond. The workshop aims to present the key achievements of the project and to discuss them with representatives of the stakeholder groups that are of major importance to CAP4Access. The workshop seeks, in particular, to contribute to an exchange and deeper understanding between two major groups of stakeholders: technology developers and providers of data infrastructure (including the OSM community) on the one hand and end-users of information on accessibility of the built environment, such as wheelchair users and other people with limited mobility on the other hand. The first session of the workshop (23/09/2015, 17:00-19:00) is open to all who are interested, while the second day’s session is reserved for discussion between the project team and the advisory board of experts. You can find the workshop agenda here.
