The ONCE Foundation for Cooperation and Social Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities announce the V edition of “The Discapnet Awards for Accessible Technologies”. The aim of the contest is to recognise the best initiatives and actions in the field of technologies applied to improve the quality of life of people with disabilities, as well as companies, entities or organisations that have developed a continuous work in the field of technological accessibility.

The award categories in the V Edition are:

Category A. Award for the service or product based on technology to improve the quality of life of the persons with disabilities. It will be an indispensable requirement to be eligible for the award that these products and services are available on the market.

Category B. Award for the person, company and organization with an outstanding trajectory in improving the accessibility of technology.

Category C. Award for the entrepreneurial project with social impact on improving the quality of life of the persons with disabilities through the technology. Only one absolute prize will be awarded for each category (A, B and C), regardless of its functional scope.

Are you an individual or an entity working to improve the quality of life of people with disabilities through technology? Do you have a project or know about an organization that is able to contribute towards this goal? By navigating the different options available on the website menu, you will be able to find the Discapnet Awards rules, to register and apply. Submissions deadline is March 15, 2019.
