DfA Acanet

Short Description

DfA Acanet is an Academic Network set up by the university MOs of EIDD-DfA Europe.
Its mission is to encourage reciprocal knowledge and partnership between its members, so as to identify opportunities for research in partnership and to promote the culture of innovation and of competitiveness through DfA by extending it into the educational structures of Europe’s universities and their applications.
DfA Acanet promotes concrete design processes and actions that comply with the DfA approach, including, but not only, in the geographical areas where EIDD’s individual academic members operate, as they often enjoy favourable conditions in their relations with other institutions operating in the same geographical areas, such as local communities, public administrations, training and research bodies, government authorities and consortia.
