About the Innovation Hub

The GDI Hub improves the lives of disabled people worldwide through collaboration, study and creative thinking; working in partnerships with business, industry, academia and the charity sector.   This September the GDI Hub will welcome its first cohort of PhD students to UCL, the London College of Fashion, Leonard Cheshire Disability and Loughborough University London. A new MSc in Disability Design and Innovation will start next year, giving students a unique multidisciplinary insight, blending hard engineering with global policy and societal contexts of disability. The GDI Hub was launched by Mayor Sadiq Kahn in September 2016 as part of London's Paralympic Legacy Programme.
