Present at the signing of the renewal agreement were Jon Imanol Ibarra, director of Puntodis, Dr Xavier Gil Mur, rector of UIC Barcelona, Dr Josep Lluis i Ginovart, director of the ESARQ - School of Architecture, and the director of the postgraduate degree, architect Enrique Rovira-Beleta.

The Online Postgraduate Degree in Accessibility and Design for All is the first formal academic initiative to take a global and cross-cutting approach to accessibility. Whereas accessibility requirements differ by country, this programme plays a vital role in making Design for All universal and versatile.

The programme combines theory and practice and its work sessions are virtual and interactive (online). As a result, students may follow it from anywhere in the world and the professors are based in various countries. This postgraduate degree is taught by renowned professionals in a number of industry fields and Design for All, as well as representatives from organisations for people with disabilities and institutions that provide universal accessibility services.

Puntodis is a company specialised in accessible communication that aims to ensure all people are able to navigate their surroundings autonomously and easily use all available resources.
