Centre for Inclusive Design and Environmental Access / Rehabilitation, Engineering and Research Centre on Universal Design at Buffalo

Centre for Inclusive Design and Environmental Access (IDEA) is dedicated to improving the design of environments and products by making them more usable, safer and appealing to people with a wide range of abilities, throughout their life spans. IDEA provides resources and technical expertise in architecture, product design, facilities management and the social and behavioral sciences to further these agendas.



The Rehabilitation, Engineering and Research Centre (RERC) on Universal Design at Buffalo has two missions: (1) to use research, product development and information dissemination to create new resources for Universal Design practice; and (2) to facilitate a dialogue on the practice and delivery of Universal Design in order to build a national and international Universal Design community.
