Global Disability Innovation Hub

About Page

The Global Disability Innovation Hub leads the AT2030 programme.

Based at UCL on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, the GDI Hub is formed of an Academic Research Centre and a Community Interest Company (a non-profit, mission-led organisation).

Our Vision

We are building a movement to accelerate disability innovation for a fairer world.

Our Mission

To change how we think about disability through co-design, collaboration, and innovation. We provide a platform for the talents of disabled people and the expertise of practitioners, academics and local communities. Over the next ten years we want to become the leading place to research, study, practice and share disability innovation, globally.

Our Objectives

We will achieve our mission through three strands of work:

  • Deliver exceptional, inter-disciplinary research, teaching and practice

  • Stimulate open-source innovation and inclusive entrepreneurship

  • Shape policy and programmes through co-creation, participation and community leadership
