Teaching Day for Youngsters
We are excited to announce our fi rst interactive teaching day dedicated to our youngsters of the congress. Based on the European core curriculum in neurorehabilitation and together with established and other young researchers, you will explore and develop your interests and basic knowledge that will help you follow and fully understand the issues of the upcoming sessions during our congress.

Ask the expert!” breakfast sessions
Up to 10 professors will offer their experience, advice, and knowledge in two parallel 60-minutes morning sessions.

Career Development
To share and improve knowledge on how to organise a study, how to best write an academic paper, and also how to choose your career path. This session primarily aims at a postgraduate audience.

Young Experts’ Battle
In a “tournament”, young specialists (<35 years) selected from abstracts will debate against each other. The audience will actively participate and discuss by using TED surveys. Hand in your abstracts for the tournament of young specialists!

Best of Oral Presentations
The six best rated abstracts will be presented in 30-minutes lectures and awarded with 200 EUR and an invitation for the ECNR 2021 each.
