The Essl Foundation, Fundación Descúbreme and Ashoka joined forces to initiate the first Accelerator to support the internationalization of innovative disability solutions for a barrier-free world. It builds on the Zero Project's research of identifying innovative, impactful, and scalable solutions that remove barriers for people with disabilities. The goal is to support innovators in scaling their proven solutions to other parts of the world. From the hundreds of nominations for Zero Project Awards, ten initiatives are selected each year for the Zero Project Impact Transfer Program.

Over the course of the programme the selected initiatives receive training, mentoring, tailored support, networking, and visibility to further replicate their innovation and impact in other geographies, in collaboration with local replication partners. The goal is to make these initiatives ready for replication, to connect them with relevant replication partners, and to further support the replication through our Alumni Community.
