Accessible Tech Network is a voluntary initiative to generate bold solutions that enhance the quality of life for disabled people through the use of assistive technologies. We offer conferences, seminars, webinars and intensive 24hour and 48hour idea prototyping hackathons around a specific challenge.
Our first event of a series covering other themes related to assistive technologies is about employment – Accessible Tech in Employment Conference and Hackathon – date: around February 2017 in London, UK.
Accessible Tech in Employment Conference is an event for everyone passionate about assistive technologies and employment. It is the first event of a series covering other themes related to assistive technologies for people with disabilities.
The conference allows attendees to listen to inspirational talks, meet like-minded people, and CEOs who regardless of disability achieved success.
We provide FREE access to conference, workshops, exhibitions, and food.

The hackathon initiative was created in collaboration with SenseSchool – a social enterprise powered by MakeSense. It was founded in 2012 by Marine Plossu, Caroline Delboy and Christian Vanizette with an aim to enable students and young graduates to learn and problem solve by getting involved in real challenges encountered by social enterprises in many different fields such as employment, health, housing, and many more. A methodology called “Innovation Game” will be used to guide the participants through the innovation process.
