This event will bring together a diverse group of practitioners and researchers in a broad conference that focuses on collectively exploring creative and desirable solution proposals that will shape the future of universal design products and practices. Our aim is to make UD2014 in Lund a creative and diverse meeting place for both speakers and participants.

The conference will strive to give participants and contributors a chance to also exchange practical experiences through an extensive demo/exhibition track.
