The academic vision for the GDI Hub is:

  1. A trans-disciplinary centre focused on innovative research around disability issues.
  2. A global knowledge exchange hub, to allow community members to exchange and develop research ideas and findings.
  3. PhD opportunities which straddle founding partner institutions.
  4. Innovative learning opportunities including novel MSc courses which harness the unique opportunity afforded by combining expertise across UCL, University of the Arts London and Loughborough London.
  5. A unique offering of outreach activities, which build on the work with wider communities already being achieved by the Academic & Cultural Quarter of the QEOP.
