Nordisk konferanse om universell utforming og ny teknologi

Norge er vertskap for den nordiske konferansen om universell utforming og ny teknologi i Oslo den 20. juni 2017.

The conference highlights the advantages of universally designed technology, by showing how it can contribute to equality and independence, and increase community participation by individuals.

We will highlight the value of universal design as strategy in the Nordic societies, and present examples of new technologies.
