DSD opened the Hungarian Office of the World Wide Web Consortium on 1 September 2002.

W3C was founded in October 1994 to lead the World Wide Web to its full potential by developing common protocols that promote its evolution and ensure its interoperability. W3C has more than 400 Member organizations from around the world and has earned international recognition for its contributions to the growth of the Web.

As its Members work to realize the full potential of the Web, W3C collaborates with regional organizations wishing to further W3C’s mission. The W3C Offices assist with promotion efforts in local languages, help broaden W3C’s geographical base, and encourage international participation in W3C Activities. Including the new Office in Mainland China, W3C currently has 16 Offices in Australia, the Benelux countries, Mainland China, Germany and Austria, Finland, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Israel, Italy, Korea, Morocco, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom and Ireland.

W3C-Hu promotes the activities of W3C with the following services:

  • orginizing tutorials, courses, general presentations, etc, on W3C technologies;
  • providing supports to locally-organized events;
  • organizing translations for W3C documents;
  • maintaining a local web site, which lists the activities in the region and includes staff contact information;
  • issuing a monthly newsletter, sent out to a local mailing list, and including the most important news of W3C in the past period, translated to the local language.
