The Interagency Committee on Disability Research (ICDR) is a coordinating group of federal department and agency representatives funding disability, independent living, and rehabilitation research.


The purpose of this conference was to advance the priority of accessibility in health information technology (IT) systems and tools from a compliance-oriented approach toward one that is user-driven, responsive to human-centered consumer experiences, and results in increased patient engagement and improved health and wellness for individuals with disabilities, older adults, and caregivers.


This symposium examined the state of the science and interactions among employment research, practice, and policy. In addition, it attendees investigated how research-based knowledge can affect practice and policy, and how practice and policy can influence research.

During this roundtable, held in June 2015, participants shared scholarly and experiential knowledge related to accessible technology and transportation, as well as identified partnership opportunities to spur innovation and increase transportation and mobility options for people with disabilities.


This report overviews suggestions and research-based methods for building effective interagency collaboration on disability research.

The purpose of this primer is to provide members of the Interagency Committee on Disability Research (ICDR) with an overview of the best practices to promote interagency collaboration.
