Inclusion and Exclusion in the Welfare Society
8-10 May 2019
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. Although the majority of those attending are from Nordic countries, this is a very international conference, with delegates present from many countries worldwide. The conference is held every two years, with a different country hosting each year.
The SUITCEYES consortium is very happy to announce that a special track proposed by project partners CERTH and HB was accepted by the organizers of the SEMAPRO 2019 conference, which will take place the coming September in Porto, Portugal.
