This document presents an overview of the IDCnet network and its results. IDCnet is a Thematic Network funded by the Fifth Framework Programme of the European Commission. The network was born originally as a support to the eEurope Action Plan, that noted the need to create recommendations for a European curriculum for designers and engineers in Design for All (DfA). The project evolved into an initial support to the activities of the European Design for All e-Accessibility Network (EDeAN) related to curriculum. The network has completed its objectives, producing recommendations for an optimal graduate profile for DfA, a taxonomy for core knowledge and skill sets for model curricula, and a set of recommendations on DfA-related higher education and research policies and strategies.
This document is a report of the IDCnet project that summarises the major outcomes of the project.
