What is the CATEA Consumer Network (CCN)?

The CCN is a network of older adults and people with disabilities. Members of CCN test new prototypes, products and services in order to improve them through focus groups, field-testing and surveys. By signing up and becoming a member of CCN, you will be among the first to preview new developments in these areas and provide input to make them more usable and accessible. As a member you will receive a periodic newsletter to keep you up to date. Membership is free and CCN studies may provide payments to participants. The CCN is an initiative of Georgia Tech's Center for Assistive Technology and Environmental Access (CATEA).

How Does it Work? How Do I Join?

Participation in the CCN is free and easy! People with disabilities and older adults may participate. The CCN Signup Form only takes about 5 to 10 minutes to complete. The Signup Form can also be completed by phone by contacting a CATEA research representative at 1-800-726-9119 (voice or TTY) or 404-894-4960. CCN members will receive periodic notices about paid and unpaid opportunities for involvement in surveys, focus groups and research studies.
