DRC - DISABILITY RESEARCH CENTRE

The Disability Research Centre was established by the Università degli Studi Internazionali di Roma – UNINT on the 7 December 2016, in response to the national need to launch an active monitoring programme of the diagnosis, rehabilitation, and education needs related to disabilities.
