Empowerment through involvement

The Funka Foundation carries out research to support inclusion and accessibility for persons of all abilities. We are a not-for-profit independent organisation working to empower persons with disabilities through user centred research and innovation.

Our main areas of activities

The foundation is active in projects and assignments on accessibility in the digital environment and communication, transport and the built environment. We are active in standardisation, scientific research, innovation, strategic studies and user-driven initiatives.

We believe in enhancing the independence of persons with disabilities through transformation of society – one step at the time.

From standards to reality

As a member of ETSI, Funka Foundation is actively contributing to European standards. This work is important, but the standards are only tools – aimed to support organisations to become compliant. To make sure your product or service is accessible for real, you need to involve end users with disabilities in development and design.
