Funka, a proud IAAP founding member, is sponsoring the IAAP EU Webinar Series. We are pleased to sponsor the 2021 IAAP EU Webinar Series. Enjoy our welcome message from Susanna Laurin, Chief Research and Innovation Officer at Funka, IAAP Representative to the EU and moderator of the event, in more than a dozen European languages! We hope you will join us for the series with experts across Europe.
The series will provide information on everything you need to know about accessibility in the EU. As the EU is leading the way in web accessibility, with increased legal requirements and updated accessibility standards, this webinars series is timely.
Participants will have the opportunity to hear from influencers from policy, regulation, standardisation, end user organisations, research, public sector, ICT-companies, universities, and e-commerce. The presenters offer a deep and specific knowledge about the European accessibility market.
The webinar series is free of charge, captioned and automatically translated to major European languages and will be recorded and added to the IAAP YouTube European channel for access by all.
