GIAP joins the AccessCat Network to promote accessible science!

The AccessCat Network (Catalonia’s Accessibility Innovation Network: Media, Education, and Culture) is an initiative of the Generalitat de Catalunya aimed at promoting accessibility to information and communication, bridging the gap between the research world and the social and business bodies.

Also joining the network are the research groups GRIHO (UdL), which will work on digital accessibility, and Neolcyt (UAB), which will work on clear communication.

The main objective of the Network is to create innovative solutions that meet the needs of a diverse society and contribute to equal access to information, culture, and education, as established by the Declaration of Human Rights (adopted and proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly on December 10, 1948).

Since its creation on January 1, 2023, the AccessCat Network has been supported and financed by the Department of Research and Universities (2021XARDI00007) of the Generalitat de Catalunya.

After formally signing the addendum to the AccessCat agreement, members of the GIAP research group will be able to participate fully in all activities, meetings, and calls aimed at AccessCat members.

The GIAP‘s accession to the network reflects its commitment and work on accessibility in archaeology in educational, museum, and public administration settings. Dr. Josep Maria Palet will represent ICAC-CERCA on the Network Council, and Dr. Marta Flórez will represent GIAP.
