Hallmark Disability Research Initiative 2017 Forum

The future of disability research at the University 
of Melbourne and beyond

We recently hosted a forum bringing together disability researchers from across the University of Melbourne, along with external partners and stakeholders, to reflect on the DRI’s successes and discuss the future of disability research at the University and beyond.

Highlights included presentations from affiliated and seed-funded researchers across faculties, roundtable conversations and interactive panel discussions on:

  • the role of research in promoting participation, inclusion and the rights of persons with disabilities;
  • identifying research issues and priorities for the future;
  • stimulating and supporting disability research at the University of Melbourne
