Inclusion of people with disability

Research conducted with and for the target audience

Actively engaging theĀ target group

Our goal is to create an inclusive society where individuals with disabilities can also find meaningful and fulfilling roles. We contribute to this mission through our practice-oriented scientific research. Throughout our projects, we actively involve individuals with (intellectual) disabilities and their support networks to tap into their valuable experiential insights.

Our research encompasses various themes, spanning from e-inclusion and inclusive education to employment and leisure, as well as the utilization of cutting-edge technologies like immersive technology and 3D printed tools. Our aim is to enhance the participation of all individuals with support and care needs, and we collaborate closely with the Modem expert network for assistive communication technology.
