As the lead technical partner on this DG Employment sponsored project, EWORX was responsible for developing an innovative multilingual internet- based Vertical Portal, to encourage and support national and transnational Social Dialogue between employers and employees in Denmark, Greece and Ireland. The challenge concerning the site was to develop a complex WAI AAA-compliant site that was visually appealing, yet would still strictly conform to WAI compliancy rules. The objectives of the vortal were further extended so that SDV became the main dissemination mechanism and resource center for ESF projects and thematic areas associated with the European Social Fund Article 6.
