Welcome Note of the executive committee

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

The mission of the European Federation of Neurorehabilitation (EFNR) is to advance the quality of science, services and education in the field of neurorehabilitation across Europe.
Due to the different approaches for Neurorehabilitation in the various European countries, the EFNR promotes a common platform for discussion of organisational models and rehabilitation ideologies.

We accordingly invite you to join us for the next European Congress of Neurorehabilitation in Lausanne in 2017. Once again, international experts from Europe and overseas will address hot topics on a multidisciplinary basis with a major emphasis on new treatments, pharmacology, and technology.
In addition, poster and free communication sessions will allow for exchanging and discussion of the freshest scientific data.
We look forward to welcoming you in beautiful Olympic Lausanne in October 2017!

With kindest regards

Leopold Saltuari
Congress President

Welcome Note of the local organising committee

Dear Colleagues,

The exchange of the newest research results and the construction of transnational networks is essential for the development of our medical field and to construct important networks. Therefore, it is our pleasure to invite you to the ECNR 2017 – the 4th European Congress of NeuroRehabilitation from 25–28 October in Lausanne.

The main focus will be on „Newest developments in Neurorehabilitation – Treatments, Pharmacology and Technology”. With the collaboration of the programme committee, we want to create an exciting programme around the main topics acute and post-acute neurorehabilitation, neuropharmacology and biomarkers as well as neurotechnologies. We are sure to win current pioneers for our keynote lectures.

Organising this congress at the SwissTech Convention Centre Lausanne gives our European society the exceptional occasion to symbolise the technological and scientifi c progress of neurehabilitation. The high tech environment joint to cultural and natural beauty in the centre of Europe encourages the network for researchers and clinicians.

We are looking forward to a stimulating and successful exchange at the ECNR 2017 in Lausanne.

Yours sincerely,

Karin Diserens
