    The ONCE Foundation for Cooperation and the Social Inclusion of People with Disabilities was founded and launched into society in September of 1988 as an instrument of cooperation and solidarity from the Spanish blind towards other collectives of people with disabilities in order to improve their living conditions. The principal objective of ONCE Foundation is to implement integration programmes of work-related training and employment for people with disabilities, and universal accessibility, promoting the creation of universally accessible environments, products and services.

    Four universities have been chosen to join the project and implement the activities proposed, all of them reference entities, both for their experience in terms of D4ALL and social inclusion and in some cases, for their experience in the development of similar projects.
