Project Overview

realise wordle

Project REALISE is a project to identify routes to sustainable innovative accessibility solutions through engaging key researchers, businesses, charities, developers, institutions and and users in exploring open innovation in software (AKA open development or open source).

These groups frequently express the unmet need for collaboration in accessibility. REALISE will address this through an on-line community marketplace, supported by Southampton’s Electronics and Computer Science (ECS) accessibility group, members of Sheffield’s School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR)OSS WatchDevices for Dignity (D4D) and Full Measure and will combine their experience of accessibility and open development in the key education, employment and health sectors alongside leading companies and other collaborators.
