Disability innovation changes lives. The technology revolution provides opportunities for scalability like never before. By harnessing the value of innovation, we can shape the future.
GDI Hub Accelerate is our innovation arm - with scale studios, acceleration programmes, a network, ecosystem development, world leading coaching and knowledge dissemination. We bring together global stakeholders around one mission – to accelerate disability innovation through partnership and collaboration.
One of the first Spark Innovation activities is an Inclusive Design Challenge, inviting young innovators to design solutions for improving access to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park for blind and partially sited people. The event takes place between 6–20 of June, 2022.
Partnering with UCL and the International Committee of the Red Cross, the GDI Hub hosted the Enable Makeathon 2.0 in London. Five teams were selected to come to London to further develop their disability innovation ideas into new products and services over the course of a 16-day intensive ‘bootcamp’.
