Working across five interacting domains – research, innovation, programmes, teaching and advocacy – the GDI Hub team are solutions-focused experts in assistive technology, inclusive design and culture and participation. GDI Hub works in 15 countries and expects to impact nine million people by 2022. It uses bold approaches and disruptive partnerships to accelerate community-led solutions to shape mainstream programming. GDI Hub delivers world-class research, ideas and technologies creating new knowledge, solutions and products. It harnesses academic excellence, innovative practice and co-creation to tackle global challenges from a new perspective. 

GDI Hub was born out of the legacy of the London 2012 Paralympic Games and launched by Mayor of London Sadiq Khan in September 2016. Based at UCL on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, GDI Hub is formed of an Academic Research Centre and a Community Interest Company (a non-profit, mission-led organisation).
