MCI-WS07: European Accessibility Act - Praxisbasierte Ansätze zur Erfüllung der Anforderungen an Barrierefreiheit
This short paper addresses accessibility and inclusivity in the context of product-service development and innovation. Two cases are presented that produced accessibility and design advice to stakeholders. One case is about new sustainable housing technology, the other, about a kitchen appliance. The cases were supported through the Inclusive Design Lab, a stakeholder organization shared between a knowledge partner and a disability advocacy partner. The context, problems, intervention, and impact of each case are presented. Findings include that the demand side is strengthened through designed tools, and that collaborative case work supports insights into the context and awareness raising and know-how transfer among stakeholders for the topic of accessibility.
