Alina Secară, CTS Senior Scientist, joined the COST Action CA19142 LEAD ME Management Committee and is one of the two Management Committee members to represent Austria in this network.

The newly formed LEAD ME COST Action - Leading Platform for European Citizens, Industries, Academia and Policymakers in Media Accessibility – aims to support stakeholders such as researchers, engineers, scholars as well as businesses and policy makers in the field of Media Accessibility and cross-cutting topics (e.g. AI and Interactive Technologies) in Europe, to share ideas, exchange good practices, as well as generate project ideas around the theme of accessibility especially in the context recently passed European legislation. Within this framework, Alina Secară took part in the online LEAD ME Winter School (23-26 November, 2020) and gave a presentation titled “Construction of access in a digital society – technology and language diversity in theatre captioning”. Claudia Wiesinger, CTS University assistant (prae doc) of the HAITrans (Human and Artificial Intelligence in Translation) research group, also attended the LEAD ME Winter School.
