eABILITIES aims at developing a framework for current and future actions in research, education and technology transfer in the field of ICT accessibility in the home, vehicle and working environments in Europe. With this purpose, eABILITIES will enable, organise and promote the share of related knowledge, communication, facilities equipment and personnel resources.

In general, the objectives are to make an extensive and detailed map of current and possible future technological developments in ICT accessibility, to organise contacts and exchanges and to identify needs, breakthroughs and bottlenecks. This requires a focused effort into tracing research and development, transfer of technology, education and training based on cooperation between industry, academic and government institutions and research centres. The information will be spread to the appropriate target groups using the eABILITIES space for resource and knowledge sharing.

eABILITIES will become the platform where excellent, multidisciplinary organisations involved in eAccessibility in Europe, will collaborate to:
* Benchmark commercial products and research activities
* Propose Recommendations and Best Practices in User Experience for eAccessibility products
* Share research resources (personnel, equipment, facilities and expertise)
* Establish fora and workshops
* Disseminate the project results
