Universal Design Grand Challenge Student Awards Night 2023

The Centre for Excellence in Universal Design (CEUD) at the National Disability Authority (NDA) would like to invite you to attend the Universal Design Grand Challenge Students Awards 2023.

This years event takes place at the Aviva Stadium Dublin. It will also be broadcast online.

We are absolutely delighted to be running this event in conjunction with Accessible EU. AccessibleEU is one of the flagship initiatives proposed by the European Commission Strategy for the Rights of Persons with Disabilities 2021-2030. It is a resource Centre on accessibility working on areas such as built environment, transport, information and communication technologies to ensure the participation of persons with disabilities in all areas of life on equal basis with others. We actively encourage you to visit their website, check out the resources, and join in with the community. We would also like to thank Enterprise Ireland for their ongoing support of the Universal Design Grand Challenge Student Competition.

Winners from Higher Education Institutions around Ireland will be announced. The 9 finalists will compete for the Judge's Choice Award in three categories: - Built Environment - Products and Services - Technology.

The winner of each category will receive a cash prize and the coveted Universal Design Grand Challenge trophy for that category. There will also be Awards for the People's Choice and Universal Design for Commercialisation Award, supported by Enterprise Ireland.
