Scale-Up4Rehab: Important step forward in digitalization rehabilitation sector

In order to ensure equal access to rehabilitation care and foster the resilience of health systems throughout North West Europe a new 5 year project will be launched.

Scale-Up4Rehab will make an important step forward in the digitalization of the rehabilitation sector by building a virtual infrastructure, through which existing virtual rehabilitation therapies will be scaled up.

The Scale-Up4Rehab project is part of the Interreg NWE programme and received 6,5 million euro funding to be able to realize this digital platform within 5 years.

The following 13 partners from The Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, Luxemburg, France and Ireland are partnering in this project:
