Although brain injuries often result in permanent unemployment, many survivors remain motivated to work and identify it as a primary rehabilitation goal. The European Torneo project offered the opportunity to realise a specialised training program for professional rehabilitation of brain injured people who are functionally independent in activities of daily living and want to return to work or school.
