This short paper introduces the idea, the main tool and the work of the EU-supported eAccess+ network (www.eaccessplus.eu) for fostering the uptake of eAccessibility in Europe. The rationale for the network starts from the fact that a considerable and elaborated body of knowledge, established in the eAccessibility and Assistive Technology domain, exists but is rarely implemented in mainstream design. There are many reasons for this sutuation and the network is working to indentify and address them and to start processes to remedy the situation.
