Catherine Holloway - Global Disability Innovation Hub
Cathy Holloway is an Associate Professor at the UCL Interaction Centre where she has established the sub-discipline of disability interactions. Cathy is a founder and co-director of Global Disability Innovation Hub (www.Disabilityinnovation.com) which runs the MSc Disability, Design and Innovation and a flagship £20mprogramme to test what works globally for Assistive Technology called AT2030 (www.AT2030.org)
The Global Disability Innovation 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 Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, GDI Hub is formed of an Academic Research Centre and a Community Interest Company (a non-profit, mission-led organisation). At GDI hub we harness academic excellence, innovative practice and co-creation to accelerate disability innovation for a fairer world. We do this across three domains: assistive technology, social development and inclusive design.
