The Swedish institute for disability research (SIDR) is a cooperation between the universities of Linköping, Örebro and Jönköping.
Our graduate programme is the world-leading research programme in disability. Disability research is an interdisciplinary subject and covers both medical and technical, as well as behavioural and social aspects.
Our disability research strategy sets the focus on the complex interplay between bio-psycho-social levels, which in the long term are assumed to provide the greatest explanatory and application values.
Our focus is to increase the knowledge about disability in society and thus contribute to improve the situation of persons with disabilities.
