End of Project

Published June 2018

The Cooperate project ends on 30th June 2018. We look back on 3 1/2 years of intensive research and development in the areas of accessibility of UML and cooperation in software development teams. The results of the project show how inclusive design can work to create solutions for people with and without disabilities and thus improve opportunities in the labour market. The project results are still available under Materials and Publications.

We would like to thank all participants of the conducted studies and all multipliers and project partners for the very nice and successful cooperation. Moreover, we would like to express our thanks to the BMAS for the funding of the Cooperate Project.
