Abstract

Over the past few years, the investigation of discrimination against students and researchers based on disability has become increasingly prominent, and it has broadened into a whole series of new perspectives and implications. Within this context, organisations, institutions and individuals have been promoting several actions for contrasting discriminatory bias and fostering a more inclusive environment for researchers and students with disabilities. One of the initiatives born in the wake of this movement is ResearchAbility, a multi-association initiative launched in 2018 that has become a subgroup of the Marie Curie Alumni Association since 2019. The main mission of ResearchAbility is twofold: (a) to support the careers of students and researchers with disabilities and (b) to promote research and awareness on disability and inclusive culture in the academic environment. After introducing the general context and mentioning data about students and staff with disabilities in UK academic institutions, the text introduces the ResearchAbility initiative, and describes some of its past activities and future areas of action.
