OPEN aims to raise the visibility of accessibility in all its facets and contribute to the realisation of an inclusive society. We plan to do this by being a point of contact for everyone who has questions about accessibility and by stimulating the exchange of experience and knowledge on accessibility in the media and cultural domains. Initially most of our activities and our website will focus on Flanders and the Netherlands, but we aim to broaden our scope in the future.

    Accessibility stands or falls with seamless cooperation between all stakeholders. OPEN therefore aims to keep in touch with the work field, the government and user organisations.
