Societal changes and poor situation of elderly, chronically ill and disabled people in Kosovo and Russia require the latest know-how of social rehabilitation, which aims at improvement of social capability and possibilities to cope with everyday life.

They have complementary high-level and wide special expertise in modern pedagogy and rehabilitation. The partner countries are Kosovo and Russia (5 HEIs, 3 ministries, 1 NGO and 4 rehabilitation centers).
The outputs and results are:

The project reaches its goals through the built courses activating professionals and students in the field of rehabilitation. The main impact of the project is the enhanced level in rehabilitation services and management skills resulting in higher client satisfaction and quality of life in PA societies.
