About us

Around twenty Italian Assistive Technology centers, since 1996, cooperate in an Interregional Working Group (GLIC). These Center are stable not for profit entities, public or private, without commercial interests. They started a technical-scientific discussion and a permanent collaboration on common topics. The GLIC centers, starting from the GLIC Position Paper (2015), despite differences at local level, all provide common services package such as information, advice, support, training/research, and are equipped with a work team, technologies and solutions for different problems of autonomy in life contexts. Such Network leverage the collaboration between the Centers to extend the impact of technology on the quality of life of people with disabilities. Since technologies are available, it is necessary to move from a phase of experimentation to a phase of empowerment, allowing a real usability of tools and services.
