• On 1 July 2020, 17 students from 11 countries have started their research internship at SPF in Nottwil. For the next nine months, they will be working on various research projects as part of the Master program in Health Sciences at the University of Lucerne. The students will deepen their understanding on spinal cord injury and contribute to research areas in rehabilitation, epidemiology, psychology, neurobiology, health communication, clinical quality management, and health systems.

    For the eighth consecutive year, Nottwil opens its doors to master students, who are interested in research on spinal cord injury!

  • The activities of the Swiss Paraplegic Foundation, its subsidiaries, and closely related organisations have been documented in detail in the Swiss Paraplegic Group’s online annual report (report.paraplegie.ch/2020/de).

  • With the Doctor honoris causa the Department of Health Sciences and Medicine at the University of Lucerne honors on 5 November 2020 the outstanding contribution Prof. Bickenbach has made to the development of the Department and ensuring its international recognition. Rooted in philosophy and law Prof. Bickenbach has advanced the conceptual foundation of the health, functioning and rehabilitation sciences. Most importantly, he is the scientific brain behind WHO’s International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF) launched in 2001. Understanding the need to bridge research and practice, he has spearheaded the “learning health system” to strengthen the response of health systems to the health needs of populations, including those living with spinal cord injury. He has also inspired generations of health scientists worldwide. For many, he has become a mentor and friend.
