Accessibility

The administrators of the 2014 – 2020 NATIONAL OPERATIONAL PROGRAMME ON GOVERNANCE AND INSTITUTIONAL CAPACITY constantly aim to ensure that pages can be accessed and utilised by as many users as possible and, as they are aware that real persons must make continuous checks to achieve this goal, thereby ask all visitors to notify any issues regarding the site at: comunicazione.pongov14-20@agenziacoesione.gov.it.

This site uses the standard XHTML 1.0 Strict code recommended by W3C. CSS layout is used to ensure better separation of contents from their graphic representation and improved accessibility. This site complies with both the requirements established in annex A, MD of 8 July 2005 and the 12 requirements laid down in recent review of this Annex.
