Aalto University’s avp.aalto.fi website are subject to the EU’s accessibility directive, the aim of which is to ensure equality in a digitalised society and set uniform requirements for accessibility.

The avp.aalto.fi website was launched on 1 June 2020. The site’s current accessibility standard is WCAG 2.1, level AA. The requirements of the Directive have been taken into account in the development of the website, and the work continues. The information in this statements is based on self-assessment.

Aalto Ventures program is committed to observing accessibility standards. The following measures are implemented in order to achieve this goal:

  • accessibility is part of our mission statement,
  • accessibility has been taken into account in the university practices,
  • a member of staff has been appointed to be responsible for accessibility at the university.

Aalto Ventures program’s objective is to maintain a website that is technically accessible and understandable in terms of its contents and that is clear and easy to use for all types of users.

The Aalto Ventures program website moderatly meets the requirements for accessibility. The website requires further improvements, however, in the following areas:

  • menu accessability for screen readers,
  • heading levels,
  • image descriptions (alt texts),
  • background and foreground contrasts
