Public Consultation for training professionals in Universal Design

A CEN Workshop agreement (CWA) has been recently drafted by international experts from industry, academia, government agencies and the civil society to recommend a curriculum for training ICT professionals in Universal Design (UD).

The aim of Universal Design is to identify ICT products and solutions that can be used by users of every age, environment, skills and context and which are also accessible to people with disabilities. For this reason, comments on the draft CWA are invited in order to identify a specification of the UD curriculum which could take into account knowledge and skills needed by ICT professionals, as well as the conditions and context for a successful adoption of UD methods and solutions in future developments of ICT industry.
