About Us

Information and communication technologies (ICT) have become a key tool for people with disabilities. They form the basis for a variety of assistive technologies.

With the dissemination of ICT, people with disabilities have found a central anchor for access and participation in the information society. The need to make the information society accessible is now a recognized goal of our community.


The Institute Integriert Studieren

The institute was developed from a model project founded in 1991, which offered services for students with disabilities under the focus of information technologies for people with disabilities in research and development.

Research is being carried out at the Institute Integriert Studieren in the field of "Disability". Although this was initially very IT-based, other areas have now been established. Today, research is carried out in the areas of "eAccessibility", "Mathematics & Games" and "Social Integration".

Support of Students with Disabilities

With the support of more than 100 students with disabilities at all faculties of the University of Linz and in cooperation with 5 partner universities, which face the same challenge it was possible to prove that integration is possible, necessary and fruitful.

Research and Development

With almost 100 research activities and projects carried out at regional, national and international levels at the Institute for Integrated Studies, significant contributions to the establishment of the research fields Assistive Technologies, Design for All and (e)Inclusion were made.

To promote the networking of research and development of assistive technology for people with disabilities and the aging population, the conference "International Conference on Computers Helping People with Special Needs" (ICCHP) was launched in 1989. Since 2002, it has become a world leader in this sector, organized biannually by the Institute Integratiert Studieren.
