Welcome letter

    Dear Colleagues,

    It is our great pleasure to invite you to participate in the 16th Congress of European Forum for Research in Rehabilitation with the theme “Innovating rehabilitation: building bridges between research, technology and practice“ to be held from September 23 – 25, 2021, Ljubljana, Slovenia, organized by European Forum for Research in Rehabilitation – EFRR and University Rehabilitation Institute Republic of Slovenia.

    The event, as all previous EFRR congresses, will be multiprofesional: we would like to invite all researchers and clinicians who work in rehabilitation, with topics ranging from basic research to return to work and quality of life, including technological and clinical viewpoints.

    Besides plenary and invited lectures, the participants will enjoy the opportunity to present their work at various oral presentations and poster sessions. We will also organise some workshops, mainly for young researchers.

    The event will take place in Ljubljana, Slovenia’s vibrant capital with a strong cultural and academic tradition. Ljubljana prides itself on being a green, relaxed, safe, and friendly city, and the Congress venue, accommodation and places of interest are conveniently within walking distance.

    On behalf of European Forum for Research in Rehabilitation – EFRR and University Rehabilitation Institute Republic of Slovenia, we look forward to welcoming you to the 16th EFRR Congress taking place in Ljubljana in 2021!

    Please note that in case of epidemic/pandemic, the conference will be held online.
