Abstract

ESTIN (European Assistive Technology Information Network) is a trans-national information service on Assistive Technologies for people with disabilities, that aggregates the contents of six national information systems in Italy (Portale SIVA), Germany (Rehadat), Denmark (HMI Basen), the United Kingdom (DLF Data), The Netherlands (Hulpmiddelenwijzer) and Spain (Catálogo de Ayudas Técnicas). It is the result of the EASTIN project, carried out in 2004-2005 with partial funding by the EU within the eTEN programme. In order to work as a network, the six national systems have been harmonized according to commonly agreed standards and integrated through the new EASTIN website. This is equipped with advanced search engines able to perform search and retrieval operations across all the partners' databases, in any of the partners' languages.
