On March 25 NIC.br and CGI.br launched the “Research Center on Web Technologies”. The objective of this center is to disseminate and promote open web technologies, as well as to encourage their adoption and use in Brazil through research and experimentation. The center will produce several outputs, such as platforms, courses, reports, recommendations and publications. The goal is to promote a greater adoption of open data in Brazil. CEWEB.br will also coordinate a Task Force on Web Accesibility in Brazil (LabWeb) to foster new open web applications and it will become an active partner for the development on best practices on web data.
