Technology Leaving No One Behind

Technology Leaving No One Behind is a flagship partnership initiative providing opportunities and support to make inclusion and accessibility a natural part of engineering new sustainable technological solutions at DTU.

Technology for all people

Technology Leaving No One Behind puts attention to accessibility, inclusion and the social impact of your solution.

Accessibility and inclusion can enhance the usability and functionality of your solution, as well as drive innovation of new ideas and increase market reach to larger user groups. It leads to better solutions for all people, and enables the 15% of the global population with disabilities to have equal opportunities for participation and contribution to society.

Technology Leaving no one Behind drives a number of activities, offers and events, including:

  • Entrepreneurship and innovation programs and activities, case competitions and workshops, as well as seed grants, network and coaching for start-ups working in the field of inclusive design, universal design and assistive technology.
  • Extracurricular activities, tools and methods to support and introduce students to universal design in both research, education and technological innovation, guided by Assistant Professor, Dagný Valgeirsdottir.
  • Strategic initiatives, ecosystems and partnerships externally and internally at DTU to ensure the full future anchorage of the initiative.
