Note on accessibility

This note on accessibility applies to the Hamburg Research Academy website (www.hra-hamburg.de).

As a public office in accordance with Directive (EU) 2016/2102, our goal is to provide a fully accessible website in keeping with the provisions of the Hamburg act on equal treatment for disabled persons (Hamburgisches Behindertengleichstellungsgesetz, HmbBGG) as well as the regulation on establishing accessible information technology for people with disabilities (Hamburgische Barrierefreie Informationstechnik-Verordnung, HmbBITVO).

Current compliance

The accessibility requirements come from Section 1 HmbBITVO in conjunction with Section 3 subsections 1–4 and Section 4 of the Federal accessible information technology regulation (Barrierefreie Informationstechnik-Verordnung, BITV), adopted on the basis of Section 11 of the Hamburg act on equal treatment for disabled persons (Hamburgisches Behindertengleichstellungsgesetz, HmbBGG).

The Verification of compliance with the requirements is as of writing pending.

Arbitration procedure

If you are unable to find a satisfactory solution, even after providing feedback to the address provided above, you may contact the ombudsperson’s office provided for in Section 13a HmbBGG. This ombudperson is tasked with fostering an extra-judicial resolution for conflicts between persons with a disability and public offices. The arbitration procedure is free. Legal counsel is not required.

The Senate Chancellery is currently performing the role of ombudsperson until such time as the office has been established.
