Inclusive Design and Intelligent Technology for Accessible Workplace

Objective

In the knowledge-based economy the workplace is anywhere: regardless of the individual location when intellectual work is underway. By including information and communication technologies on the premises one can describe the workplace as an "intelligent" workplace.
The IDIA Network aims at integrating the potential of the intelligent workplace with the principle of Design for All, and thus develop a new concept for workplace design - moving the current mindset away from the "individual" thinking, that tends to alter basic designs, towards including from the outset the maximum number of naturally diverse human beings in the design and planning process.
The IDIA Network will establish a multidisciplinary project team, coordinated by the IDIA Scientific Committee that will carry out interdisciplinary analysis and studies for identifying user needs for the design of an accessible workplace, assessment of current and future technologies, and derive a collection of reference scenarios

The IDIA Network will produce a number of exploitable results:
- Guidelines and prospective scenarios related to the uptake of a Europe-wide market for the production of new design components for accessible workplaces.
- A community of actors supporting IDIA-compliant design concepts, that will continue to contribute ideas and results after the project end.
