SkyDox and European Court of Human Rights Wins Award for Humanitarian Project

Written by Ainsley Whalen

You might have heard in the news about SkyDox’s work with the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR). Today, the staff here at SkyDox were delighted to hear that we have been awarded the Special Recognition Award 2012 for this humanitarian project!

The Court then makes those judgements public, which they do via their own public-facing HUDOC portal. SkyDox has been working hard to make the portal faster and easier to use. In particular, we have made it so simple that out of the 4.6 million visitors who go to the site each year each person will be able to search and more easily access the documents, regardless of their levels of computer literacy. We’ve also created a mobile view to ensure that members of the public who use mobile phones instead of a home computer will be able to access the documents. You can read more information about the project in our case study and more about the award in the press release.

Thanks iCMG! It’s rewarding to be recognized for our work with the ECHR because we believe it’s important to support humanitarian efforts. Our aim is to help local, national, and international organizations like the ECHR as well as NFP, by providing a simple and secure file sharing and collaboration platform which can be adapted for a variety of non-profit goals.
