In May 2019 Sarah Woodin from the University of Leeds attended the NNDR Conference in Copenhagen (http://www.nndr2019.org/ ) where she presented on aspects of the user studies work of the SUITCEYES project. NNDR is a multidisciplinary network and it is the major conference of disability researchers interested in cultural, societal and environmental dimensions of disability and marginalisation in this part of the world.

The conference is held every two years, with a different country hosting each year.
