The purpose of the NARRTC (formerly known as the National Association of Rehabilitation Research and Training Centers) is to improve the quality of life, independence of life choices, and the inclusion of individuals with disabilities and their families through relevant research, training, technical assistance, knowledge translation, development and demonstration activities.
NARRTC members are current projects funded through the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR). The ultimate mission of NARRTC is to promote the full inclusion of persons with disabilities in American society.
NARRTC 37th Annual Conference is an opportunity for NIDRR grantees to share the latest research findings, training and knowledge translation methodologies and results related to enhancing interventions, programs or systems to improve the lives of people with disabilities.
NARRTC also welcomes non-NIDRR funded researchers and KT experts to share their latest work and advances to the disability field.
You are invited to submit proposals focusing on advances in disability or rehabilitation research and KT methodologies, relevant to health and function, employment, community living and participation across disability groups. Proposals focusing on a specific disability are also welcomed.
