The Global Public Inclusive Infrastructure

GPII is a project of the Raising the Floor Consortium, a consortium of academic, industry and non-governmental organization and individuals.

The purpose of the GPII is to ensure that everyone who faces accessibility barriers due to disability, literacy, digital literacy or aging, and regardless of economic resources, can access and use the Internet and all its information, communities, and services for education, employment, daily living, civic participation, health, and safety.

The GPII is being developed via the funding of different European and North-American programs and initiatives. Click on the names of the projects at the beginning of the page to get more information about each of these projects.

Cloud4all

Cloud4all is a EC-funded, 7FP project that will develop a complete new paradigm in accessibility, by augmenting adaptation of individual products and services (2nd generation) with automatic personalization of any mainstream product or service a user encounters, using cloud technologies to activate and augment any natural (built-in) accessibility or installed access features the product or service has or recommending the appropriate third-party solutions, based on the user’s needs and preferences.

Within the scope of the GPII, Cloud4all will be responsible of setting up the basic infrastructure and developing proof-of-concept implementations of the auto-configuration capabilities in up to 19 platforms, devices and applications

PROSPERITY4all

Prosperity4all focuses on developing the infrastructure to allow a new ecosystem to grow; one that is based on self-rewarding collaboration, that can reduce redundant development, and create the robust cross-platform spectrum of mainstream and assistive technologies based access solutions required.

This will be done through a process based on true value propositions for all stakeholders and resulting in a system that can profitably serve markets as small as one, at a personally and societally affordable cost.
