CHAT is a community driven by people who share a passion and believe in the transformative effect that assistive technology has on individual’s lives.
We are delighted to announce that our next CHAT will take place at Dublin City Council, Wood Quay, Dublin 8 on Tuesday 25th February at 10.00 am.
This CHAT, we are going to explore how accessible and assistive technology benefits smart cities and smart homes. We will share some of the opportunities and ongoing work/projects that are happening to ensure our growing smart cities and smart homes are accessible for all citizens.
If you are engaged in a project or work in this area and would like to contribute on the day please contact Sarah@freedomtech.ie.
We aim to ensure that the venue in Dublin City Council is fully accessible but we would appreciate if you could let us know if you have any support requirements.
People from a wide variety of backgrounds are involved in CHAT. We are, people with disabilities (expert and non-expert assistive technology users), developers, assistive technology professionals, researchers, suppliers, third level institutions as well as mainstream and disability specialist service providers and professional therapists and other interested parties. CHAT facilitates and creates opportunities amongst members to learn from each other and makes the most of members’ expertise to identify real challenges, gaps and to consider solutions.
We look forward to welcoming you on Tuesday 25th of February at Dublin City Council
