Submitted by AFE INNOVNET on Thu, 10/30/2014 - 18:09.

Hogar Accesible aims to improve the quality of life of people by helping them enjoy life at home and in their neighbourhood for longer. To do so, they focus on solutions for independent living and accessibility. Hogar Accesible was an active contributor of the European Year 2012 on Active ageing and Solidarity between Generations.

Why we joined the AFE-INNOVNET network?

Because we are interested in contacting and working with all those who work on accessibility in a general way. We understand that accessibility affects us all and needs to be examined and studied from several points of view. We are also looking at the methods developed in other countries to solve problems and upgrade non accessible homes and public infrastructures.

What do we expect to gain from it?

We expect to learn and share experience and knowledge about how accessibility is handled in countries that have been working on these problems for years. We also expect to find funding for projects, public and private, on which can collaborate in order to continue to increase our knowledge and improve our methods.

What are our plans for the future?

We want to be the "Go-To" mobility and accessibility platform for individuals, and also to provide public authorities with our tools and solutions.

What are our objectives?

Our aim is to offer easy-work tools and solutions to ALL people which will allow them to be more autonomous at home, work or in public places while providing top quality support and services based on a client-oriented approach, environmental-friendly, and in a cost effective way.
