Relaunch: kubia has a new website

The new website focuses on the four core tasks of kubia – advice, funding, continuing education and knowledge transfer – with a modernised design and page and menu structure. Making the website as barrier-free as possible was a central concern in the relaunch.

For all events offered by kubia, it is now clear at a glance whether sign language interpretation, wheelchair access or other support measures are available. These can be requested when registering for the event. The new website also contains in the section “Knowledge” a variety of expert articles and interviews that can be read online.

After the launch of the website, work on it will continue: for example, further specialist content will be added on an ongoing basis and, in future, all funded projects will also be presented and documented online.
