A round table discussion on Ergonomics and Design for All took place during an
international meeting on ergonomics organized by the Dutch organization “Human Factors vereniging” in Amersfoort, NL in November 2016. This event was co-hosted by FEES-Federation of European Ergonomics Societies and CREE-Centre for Registration of European Ergonomists. The round table discussion consisted of various expert talks on different aspects of the Design for All concept ranging from applications in the built environment to the health care sector. The goal was to introduce the concept, provide an overview of European mandates and subsequent standardization approaches as well as delivering particular insights from research institutions. Both the speakers panel and the audience consisted of individuals from various countries. The international participation and the active discussion during the round table have shown that the work of the IEA TC Ergonomics in Design for All is seen as an important and valuable activity. The IEA international round table was a huge success. There is broad support for the aim of the TC to establish “Design for All” as a generally accepted and applied methodology in the process of designing for products, services and processes.
