Accessibility restrictions and accessibility inquiries

The Weizmann Institute does its utmost to make the content of all webistes fully accessible. However, since many of the websites linked from Weizmann Institute websites are operated and physically maintained by entities other than the Institute’s Division of Information Systems, the Institute cannot ensure that these entities fully comply with the provisions of any law.

If you encounter any issues of non-compliance with Accessibility regulations on any Weizmann Institute website, please contact our accessibility coordinator
