12th Congress of European Forum for Research in Rehabilitation

“We are honored to invite you, on behalf of EFRR, to 12th Congress of European Forum for Research in Rehabilitation which will be held in Istanbul between September 11 - 14, 2013.

The human health and science-technology are continuous and dynamic due to the developments in socio-economic changes of the societies. We, as professionals working in the field of rehabilitation, aim to enable people to cope with the activity limitations and participation restriction due to their health conditions, to lead independent lives and to be provided with optimum functionality. In order to achieve our goal, we prefer to dedicate our professional life to our patients’ benefit by enriching our fundamental education with up-to-date information and increased practical capability on all kind of rehabilitative processes.

The congress which we will hold in 2013, will provide shared knowledge to be used in human health, new scientific research, and for the improvement of educational efforts in rehabilitation. Therefore, we have designed a comprehensive scientific program to update our professional knowledge, to improve our skills, and to meet the expectation by enhancing national and international coordination on issues within and out of our profession. During the congress, our colleagues will be sharing their knowledge and experiences on their fields.

Since there are direct flights to many European cities and the congress venue is located in the center of Istanbul, it will provide you with a great convenience. We are waiting for you to get together with warm people of this sunny Mediterranean country.

Hoping to see you at our congress...”
