Accessibility means that anyone can easily use online services and their content. The EU’s directive on web accessibility and the Finnish act on offering digital services also apply to The Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra, the owner of the WCEF brand.

Sitra is committed to maintaining an accessible website. We will ensure that this website – – and all new information on it achieves “Level AA” conformance to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1, to comply with the EU Web Accessibility Directive.

This website was first published in November 2023 and currently has the conformance rating AA to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1. Our most recent web accessibility testing for this website was in November 2023 when the site was first launched. The accessibility testing was carried out by our partner Genero.

When building this website, needs of all audiences were considered: the website is compatible with screen readers for the visually impaired, and when producing our content, we aim to use clear language. The accessibility of this website will be continuously improved with the help of audits carried out by experts.
