Proposals for Assistive, Accessible Mobile Apps Wanted

Primary tabs

The Wireless Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center (RERC) is a collaborative effort of Georgia Tech and the Shepherd Center, funded by the U.S. Department of Education. The RERC is inviting experienced app developers to submit proposals for financial support to develop assistive and/or accessibility apps for mobile platforms (e.g., Android, Blackberry 10, iOS and Windows Phone). Developers may request partial funding for apps that already enjoy partial support from other sources or for adaptation of existing apps to additional platforms. However, no funding is available for hardware development.

The RERC will assist the developer in releasing the app through the appropriate mainstream marketplace, (App Store, Blackberry App World, Google Play, Nokia OVI Store, or Windows Phone Marketplace) or through the RERC’s App Factory. The developer will retain the intellectual property. The support of the RERC will be acknowledged in promotion of the app.

If the app is sufficiently successful, the developer may be offered additional funding for further development (e.g., additional features and updated versions for additional platforms).
