Message from the Vice-Chancellor, University of Colombo

Prof. H.D. Karunarathne

The nEurocare project is a European initiative capacity-building project for nursing education in Sri Lanka while meeting the challenges of caring for people with Neurodegenerative Disorders in Sri Lanka. This project was established as the first international grant project in the Faculty of Nursing in 2022. The Faculty of Nursing at the University of Colombo is the first cradle of nursing education in the university system in Sri Lanka, and it is the youngest faculty at the University. The aim of this project is to develop new and innovative courses and methodologies in healthcare, in order to develop human capacities in the field of Neurodegenerative disorders within the four, selected higher education institutions in Sri Lanka.

This timely significant project is mainly coordinated by the Faculty of Nursing, University of Colombo the main partner University from Sri Lanka. Under this project, there are a series of international workshops and conferences that have been scheduled to develop postgraduate level course modules in nursing care education specializing in Neurodegenerative disorders. Hence, this could be noted as the first initiative to develop postgraduate nursing education in Sri Lanka.

As the Vice Chancellor of the University of Colombo, it gives me immense pleasure to be a part of this initiative through which we as a university are able to widen our horizon as the number one university in the country by providing students with opportunities, they otherwise wouldn’t have the access to.
