Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

The WAI-CooP Project invites you to an open meeting, online, on
	*19 April 2022 from 14:00 to 16:00 Central European Time (CET, Brussels time)*

Participation is free, *registration is required* by 14 April 2022.

This event may be of interest to practitioners from public authorities or the private sector; organizations representing people with disabilities; researchers; product or service providers; training providers, as well as policy makers.

This online meeting will be focused on monitoring digital accessibility and is open to all. We will reflect on the recent web accessibility directive monitoring exercise carried out by EU member states. We will also discuss some of the challenges of monitoring and how these could be addressed.

We encourage participation from people interested in:
- Implementation of digital accessibility in Europe and internationally
- Guidance on available web accessibility training, tools, and resources
- Exchanges on the European Union (EU) Web Accessibility Directive (WAD)

Background on the WAI-CooP Project: The WAI-CooP Project, Communities of Practice, is a Coordination and Support Action project, co-funded by the European Commission (EC) under the Horizon 2020 program. It supports implementation of international standards for accessibility through:
- Establishing vendor-neutral overview on available training, tools, and resources internationally
- Analyzing technological advancements and coordinating with relevant research and development
- Providing opportunities for key stakeholders to share resources and to exchange best practices
