Design best practices

Help other NGI Zero projects by sharing your best-practices based on your efforts to implement accessibility


If our scan results show no barriers, we can provide you with a formal accessibility certification


The EU facilitates us, so we do not charge anything for our help. However, we would appreciate to hear back from you about what worked and what did not work. And, it would be great if our students could maybe help you in the form of a semester study assignment, internship or if you could present your product and experiences to our team and network. Also if you learn about any new accessibility solutions, we would love to hear about it.

Our Mission

Our mission is to support NGI funded projects to make their new media solutions accessible for everyone. So if you are working on a Next Generation Internet ( funded project, we invite you to produce a safe, secure, open and accessible end product. A product that people can trust and everyone can use, including people with a (visual, auditory, motor or other) disability. This is important now that our NGI journey goes beyond the web and mobile applications, to include a flood of connected devices on the outside and inside of our bodies, vehicles, buildings and infrastructure.
