Vicomtech-IK4 founding member of Open URC Alliance
The objective of the alliance is to integrate every user, especially those with lack of knowledge and/or functional diversity and guaranteeing Universal Access. To do so, The Open URC Association is developing standards and technologies to provide people with Universal Remote Controls (remote controls) prepared and adapted. They will also create a stamp every device will have so that they are more accessible.
The Open URC Alliance was officially founded in Saarbrücken, Germany, and Vicomtech-IK4 is a founding member of the same. The Alliance is opened for other organizations, such as companies, public institutions or research organizations, to participate. It has the approval of the European Commssion, and it was created as a result of different European research projects on e-Inclusion (I2HOME, VITAL, BRAINABLE and others).
