Four CAPHRI projects awarded MUMC+ Next Step grant

Next step winners

Fourteen health initiatives, of which four CAPHRI projects, were awarded a MUMC+ Next Step grant. The awarded projects all contribute to MUMC+'s mission to work on health promotion in the broadest sense. The financial boost comes from the reservation of a total of ten million euros made available for innovation funds, which was announced earlier this year by chairman of the board, Helen Mertens.

The awarded CAPHRI projects are: 

  • Care that works: Hospital-wide implementation of work-related support in clinical care in the MUMC+
    Project leader: Annelies Boonen (RL Functioning, Participation and Rehabilitation)
  • Implemention of the Healthy Primary School of the Future

  • Health promotion and prevention of disease: MUMC+ Vitality Desk
    Project leader: Adhiambo Witlox (RL Creating Value-Based Health Care) | Joint initiative of Vrouw, Moeder en Kind Centrum, Maastricht Comprehensive Cancer Center, Centrum voor Bewegen and Centrum voor Chronisch Zieken
