This cooperation between higher education institutions and Secti is extremely important, as it promotes encouragement, investment and generation of knowledge in various fields, as well as promoting actions, discussions and investigations in the areas of ergonomics and accessibility. One of the main objectives of the event is to provide the opportunity to present, analyze and review topics and concepts related to promoting social inclusion through various interactions with built environments and their users.
The event will be attended by students, professionals and speakers from different countries, such as Brazil, Portugal and Italy, which will enrich discussions and contributions to development and modernization at the local, regional and national levels. The topics to be covered relate to the quality of life of residents in built spaces, and show research results in the areas of ergonomics and accessibility in different environments.
Holding these events at the Jaragua Technological Pole Innovation Center (Cipt) represents a unique opportunity to foster interaction between national and international researchers, in an innovative, collaborative and welcoming space. Furthermore, it will be an opportunity for students and professionals involved in understanding the relationship between people, especially people with disabilities or physical limitations, and the built environment.
