Workshops - an overview

The Institute for Universal Design accompanies and supports businesses, businesses of the social economy, municipalities and non-profit organizations in the implementation of universal design strategies as well as the development and adaptation of products and services.


The institute sees itself as a moderator of societal and economic change processes. For this purpose, the institute develops individual formats and tools with its customers and introduces them into the respective organisation.


In doing so, the institute integrates corresponding relevant specialist disciplines and scientific organizations.


We are currently working intensively with our customers on the challenge of digitization in the health & care sector and the integration of universal design principles into entrepreneurial contexts.


Combined competencies

We firmly believe that multi-disciplinary approaches are needed to tackle challenges and, together with our customers, to achieve the best possible result!
