The Global Public Inclusive Infrastructure (GPII)

The Global Public Inclusive Infrastructure (GPII) is a general concept that describes the efforts by multiple organizations to work together to make a more cooperatively accessible digital world.

In the early 2000’s the concept was used to coalesce a consortium of over 50 organizations and companies that worked together on several grants related to digital equity. Its focus was ensuring that everyone who faces accessibility barriers can access and use any digital technologies they encounter, anytime, anywhere, any tech. It sought to address three major goals in doing this:

  1. if a solution existed - it could be found
  2. solutions were easier to understand and use, and 
  3. it was easier to create better solutions as well as solutions for unmet needs

Three of the results of those efforts were the DeveloperSpace, the Unified Listing  and Morphic. More can be found about each at the following sites. 

  • DeveloperSpace. The one-stop place to find resources, components and people to conceive, develop, test and market novel accessible solutions.
  • Unified Listing. Find accessible information and communication technologies if it exists anywhere in the world.
  • Morphic. Autopersonalization that makes each computer easier to use. Also can personalize to your preferences, including your AT.
