Industry and Nonprofit Partners

Together, we can accomplish CREATE’s mission and make the world a better place for individuals with disabilities.

CREATE employs a consortium model for academic, industry, and community partners to help address accessibility bottlenecks in both processes and products. We develop technology, innovation and translation models that support our partners in deploying accessible technologies and creating inclusive communities.
