Supporting scientific research

Founded in 1991 in Zürich by Alain Rossier and Ulrich Schellenberg, the Paraplegic Research Foundation (IRP) aims to fund research in the field of paraplegia in order to contribute to the improvement of living conditions of people affected by spinal cord injuries. In 1995, the Foundation was established in Geneva and since 2014, the two entities have been operating as a single Foundation. 


SICPA supports the IRP Foundation every year to help it finance its research projects.
