    Low back pain is one of the so-called Non-Communicable Diseases (NCD), the relative burden of which has steadily increased worldwide since 1990, according to the World Health Organization. To address this problem, Disc4All provides a new generation of professionals with international mobility equipped with a set of unique capabilities to tackle the prevention and management of highly complex disorders through technology. As the Disc4All project is moving forward days after days, we are extremely happy to inform you that the 3rd Winter School was held in Athens, Greece, hosted by Protavio in “NCSR” – Demokritos. From the 20th to the 24th of February 2023, it combined the internal activities of the Disc4All consortium with a series of workshops about Business strategy, Communication, Personal Development and Business Innovation. The program was as intense as enjoyable. The first days consisted of meetings, presentations, discussions and project assessment by the Project Officer Mr. Thomas Vyzikas. The internal activities were followed by two days of hard work focused on workshops and lectures. Thanks to the great cooperation of international and local experts, all the PhD candidates consolidated their knowledge in a great atmosphere. We are very thankful for the great hospitality and social event of our partners from Greece. We are now very much looking forward to seeing you during the Barcelona 7th VPH Summer School, 5-9 June 2023.
