EUFAPA has been an integral part of the REHAB project. The REHAB project co-funded from Erasmus+ and the role of EUFAPA was to provide content to the REHAB project in the development of an innovated masters programme in physical therapy in selected universities in Ukraine. The project began in 2019, was extended due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and was subsequently moved to online only collaborations between European Partners and Ukrainian Partners. Since the invasion in Ukraine, the project was extended further, with more modules to add to the innovative programme, particularly in relation to rehabilitation of war victims. The closing conference was held on the 11th November 2022.
The closing ceremony is available on demand from YouTube.
