The aim of I-KNOW-HOW is to enable people who are diagnosed with cancer to continue their work or to return to their work.

I-KNOW-HOW is an innovative European social project that supports employees who have cancer in their reintegration at work, or enables them to remain working after their diagnosis. According to data of the Integraal Kankercentrum Nederland (Dutch Integral Cancer Centre) 601 people in the age group 15 – 59 years were diagnosed with cancer in 2018 in Zeeland. Solidarity University, HZ University of Applied Sciences and ZB| Planbureau en Bibliotheek van Zeeland work together in the European Interreg project I-KNOW-HOW in order to develop new supportive services for employees who have cancer, HR professionals, employers and job coaches. The goal is to enable employees who have cancer to return to work faster and, additionally, to ensure that the illness leads to unemployment less often than it does now.
