Join our online workshops during Science Week 2020. Multiple date and times available.

What is Crowd4Access?

Crowd4Access is a Citizen Science project. It is a partnership between citizens and professional technology researchers who come together to learn how accessible are the footpaths of Irish cities.

Why to take part?

Everyone has challenges when navigating the footpaths of a city. The wheelchair user and the parent pushing a buggy may need access ramps, the runner may need an even surface, the user of crutches may need shorter street crossings, the person with low eyesight may need a good contrast between footpath and the street, whereas the blind may need tactile pavement. We want to learn about the problems that you encounter when navigating the city.
