Ladies and Gentlemen,

It is with great pleasure that we welcome you today to la Cité des Sciences - Universcience for the European eAccessibility Forum that we organize every year with the BrailleNet and the new Institute of e-Accessibility. I also welcome Mr. Burger chairing  the institute with enthusiasm and determination.

Mrs. Claudie Haigneré, our President, is sorry to have other commitments today so that she cannot open this forum whose objectives are at the heart of our project, as well.

As you may know, our organization welcomes public on its two sites, namely  at  the Cité des Sciences and the Palais de la Découverte. Thus improving the accessibility for all of our museums and our services in situ is a priority. It is a priority for our on-line service, as well.

Universcience has the ambition to become a new medium - it's part of our project - developing a digital strategy organized around the creation and the dissemination of a variety of digital media. Our ambition is very clearly that all our public, without exception, can have equal access and can become equally involved into them. Everything is thought out and designed for this purpose. Our information systems are part of this process. This is also very clearly included in our project.

Each direction of the institution is part of this objective within its scope of competence. As the director of the public library providing various services, offering mediation to our visually impaired or deaf users, I see and experience it every day.

Let me conclude by wishing you all a very good and very successful day and thanking you for your attention.
