UsabilityNet was a project funded by the European Union
to provide resources and networking for usability practitioners,
managers and EU projects.
- Usability practitioners: by providing
a comprehensive set of authoritative information and resources
on this web site.
- Managers: by providing information and resources about usability
to support the needs of managers and procurers
- EU projects: by providing material specifically tailored for
use by EU projects.
- Professional organisations: by providing a forum for communication
between professional bodies and other organisations concerned
UsabilityNet was funded by the EU Framework V IST Programme
as IST 1999-29067: a preparatory, accompanying and support
measure. The project started in February 2001 and finished
in July 2003, when the project manager, Nigel Bevan, took
responsibility for maintaining the web site.
