On 19 March, the network will celebrate the resolution event for the Call for disruptive solutions - 2024. Each of the winning solutions will receive up to €20,000 in funding. 

The AccessCat Network’s mission is to promote the transfer of research results on accessibility to information and communication through various initiatives. Among these initiatives is the launch of the Call for disruptive solutions, which celebrates its first edition this year.
