Access Services Experts meeting 2022

Access Services experts gather once a year to raise the most important questions during a plenary session which has become, over the years, the meeting point for those working in accessibility services across EBU organizations.  

This event is a great opportunity to meet with other colleagues working in accessibility and share projects, exchange best practices and learn from each other’s innovations and approaches.
Participants will get the chance to cross-pollinate ideas and exchange, not only with their peers but also with people from the rest of the industry and European associations.

The 2022 Access Services plenary meeting was held in Oslo, Norway, on Friday 17 June 2022, at the kind invitation of NRK.

On Thursday, 16 June, all delegates were invited to attend a pre-event, including a presentation of NRK Access Services, a guided tour and a cocktail.
