January 22, 2015 Congress Info no comments

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of our Local Organizing Committee, it is a great honor and pleasure for us to invite you to the upcoming European Congress of NeuroRehabilitation (ECNR), taking place in the spectacular historic architecture of the “Hofburg Vienna”, Austria, from December 1-4, 2015.

The ECNR 2015 will be the European medical platform and comprehensive networking forum, which brings together medical scientists, rehabilitation specialists and industry representatives from all over Europe and all around the globe. The ECNR will allow for a meeting of medical professionals with a wide-ranging expertise in the field of NeuroRehabilitation and beyond.
This international convention will also enable efficient bridging to and between other specialized disciplines in the sphere of all-inclusive rehabilitation medicine, which is reflected by a formidable scientific meeting program. The effective inclusion of European policy makers and international experts in the field of healthcare management will not only stimulate new dialogues during the congress, but will also foster a broader exchange of knowledge and expertise in order to complete a sophisticated meeting schedule.

Our European convention will also serve as a troika meeting, in view of the fact that the German Society of NeuroRehabilitation (DGNR) and the Austrian Society of NeuroRehabilitation (OeGNR) will all hold their annual national meetings for their members within the framework of the ECNR 2015 in Vienna.

Meanwhile, we would like to wish you all the best and are already looking forward to meeting you in Vienna in 2015!

Kind regards,

Giorgio Sandrini

About the European Federation of NeuroRehabilitation Societies (EFNR)


The European Federation for NeuroRehabilitation Societies (EFNR) is a multidisciplinary, international, nonpartisan, non-denominational organisation for the promotion of research, education, and scientific dialogue in the area of NeuroRehabilitation and related medical specialties.

Headquartered in Vienna, Austria, the EFNR is the effective European-wide organ of national NeuroRehabilitation Societies and other relevant stakeholders. Our organisation furthermore serves as a strong advocacy institution, as well as between healthcare professionals, media representatives and policy makers.

As a registered non-profit organisation, directly dedicated to endorsing and coordinating the scientific, philanthropic, intellectual and professional activities in the area of NeuroRehabiliation, the EFNR is driven by its commitment to serve the international scientific community and to provide latest research results to all interest groups.

It is also the mission of the EFNR to promote the medical and social wellbeing of persons with disabling neurological disorders, to advance training and research in the basic and clinical sciences which can lead to functional recovery of neurologically impaired persons, and to disseminate the knowledge of this research among professionals and the general public.

In addition, the EFNR develops and promotes homogeneous educational standards and curricula for young academics who intend to participate in research activities or practice in the field.
