11th World Congress for NeuroRehabilitation
7-11 October 2020

The 11th World Congress for Neurorehabilitation was scheduled to take place in Lyon, France, but was moved online because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.  With over 2100 registrants from all neurorehabilitation (NR) disciplines, ranging from students to professors, the Congress, held jointly with the 35th Congress of the French Society of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine, was a great success.

The theme flowing through the Congress was the importance, not of the ‘abstract’ individual with a neurological condition that is often the subject of science, but of the real person, with real life goals, and individual rehabilitation intervention requirements.  

The Congress programme encompassed plenary lectures, symposia, oral communications, posters, teaching courses, industry sessions, and even a social programme.
