The Universal Accessibility Suite (AccesS) is an innovative initiative aimed at enhancing accessibility and inclusivity in smart buildings and cities. By leveraging advanced technologies like AI, BIM, and GIS, AccesS seeks to create barrier-free environments, improve mobility, and ensure equal access to services and facilities. AccesS focuses on designing accessible and sustainable solutions through advanced analytics, life-cycle assessments, and simulation-based testing. The project explores the balance between comfort and energy consumption, promoting sustainable practices with virtual user models and adaptive building operations. A key feature is the development of an Accessibility Assessment Scheme with clear criteria for evaluating accessibility. The project includes six case studies in five European cities (Bulgaria, Italy, Spain, Netherlands, and Switzerland), covering cultural heritage buildings, care facilities, and public services. Over its 36-month span, 22 partners from 9 countries will collaborate to create more accessible, sustainable, and user-friendly environments, addressing real-life situations and maximizing impact.

Our role

At QUE, we focus on designing innovative tools that make buildings more energy-efficient and sustainable. Our smart systems help manage building operations and ensure they meet high accessibility standards. We aim to create solutions that make buildings not only more sustainable but also more user-friendly for everyone. By integrating various parts of the project and evaluating the results, we ensure everything runs smoothly. Additionally, we support the development of business models and actively communicate our progress to keep everyone informed. Our ultimate goal is to enhance accessibility and sustainability in the built environment.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon Europe Framework Programme for Research and Innovation under grant agreement no 101147722.
