Stakeholders

FORTH-ICS (LTO) The Institute of Computer Science (ICS), an ERCIM  
member, is one the seven institutes of the Foundation for Research and  
Technology - Hellas (FORTH), a major national research centre partly  
funded by the General Secretariat for Research and Technology of the  
Hellenic Ministry  of Development. The mission of FORTH-ICS is to  
perform high quality basic  and applied research, to promote education  
and training, and to contribute  to the development of the Information  
Society, at a regional, national, and European level. Since its  
establishment in 1983, FORTH-ICS has had a long history and recognised  
tradition in conducting basic and applied research, and playing a  
leading role, in Greece and internationally, in the field of  
Information and Communication Technologies. The Human Computer  
Interaction

Laboratory of FORTH-ICS carries out leading research activities  
focused on  developing user interfaces for interactive applications  
and services that are accessible, usable, and ultimately acceptable  
for diverse users in the Information Society. The Laboratory also  
operates the Centre for Universal Access & Assistive Technologies  
(CUA&AT). The main objective of the Centre, which operates in the  
context of the Human Computer Interaction Laboratory of FORTH-ICS, is  
to support the equal participation and socio-economic integration of  
people with various types of disability in the emerging Information  
Society, by developing accessible applications and services.

The Centre is actively involved in the eEurope/eAccessibility  
initiatives of the EC, and in the establishment of national  
recommendations in that respect. The Centre also contributes to  
international standardisation  activities as well as to dissemination  
activities promoting accessibility. The Centre for Universal Access  
and Assistive Technologies is the co-ordinator of GR-DeAN, the Greek  
Design for All eAccessibility Network, operating as the National  
Contact Centre in the context of EDeAN, the European Design for All  
eAccessibility Network. The GR-DeAN Network aims to promote in Greece  
the application of the "Universal Access and Usability" and "Design  
for All" principles, support activities towards the equal  
participation of individuals with disabilities in the Information  
Society as well as raise awareness

of public and private actors regarding the adoption and implementation  
of W3C-WAI accessibility guidelines. Special Interest Groups have been  
set up to carry out discussions related to accessibility issues in  
Greece. The network is coordinated by FORTH-ICS in cooperation with  
the National Confederation of People with Disability of Greece (ESAEA).

is the only Greek organisation authorised to enrol new W3C Members in  
Greece. The Office also disseminates information regarding W3C  
cutting-edge technologies, including the work performed on the  
potential of the present Web so that it evolves to the Web of the  
future.
Finally, the Office extends its range to European Organisations  
residing in Greece, including the latest W3C member, ENISA, the  
European Network and Information Security Agency, which recently  
joined W3C through the Greek Office.

ESAEA The National Confederation of Disabled People is an umbrella  
organization representing the disability movement of Greece. The  
N.C.D.P was founded in 1989 by organizations of people with  
disabilities and their families in order to copy with issues of common  
interest related to any kind of disability and therefore, is a strong,  
independent representative body for all disabled people in the Greek  
state. It includes more than 250 organizations that deal with all  
kinds of disabilities. The N.C.D.P of Greece has officially been  
recognized as the national co-partner of the Greek State dealing with  
disability issues, promoting policies so that those concerned are  
included socially, economically and politically in the everyday life  
of the country. The N.C.D.P' s mission is to combat discriminations  
against disabled people and protect their rights as well as the rights  
of their families. Its goal is the equalization of opportunities for  
the people with disabilities. At a national level, as the most  
representative organization for people with disabilities, the N.C.D.P  
participates actively in decision-making and stands for people with  
disabilities in the NGO's dialogue with the Greek State. It is  
organizing strategies, controlling the implementation of legal  
measures and makes suggestions to the Greek State regarding education,  
employment, information society and accessibility matters.
