- 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.
