Organizing Societies

Please meet the four organising societies that are responsible for the organization of the third International Congress on Neurorehabilitation and Neural Repair.

The Dutch Society for Neuro-Rehabilitation aims on Bridging the gap between fundamental and applied scientific research in the field of neurological rehabilitation.  They facilitate exchange of knowledge and scientific research between clinicians and others with an interest in neurological rehabilitation, specifically stroke, (traumatic) brain injury, Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, pediatric neurological disorders and spinal cord injury. Furthermore they stimulate collaboration between clinicians and others with an interest in neurological rehabilitation (including patient organisations) and represent scientific research and healthcare policy in the field of neurological rehabilitation. Last but not least they represent (para)medical professionals in the field of neurological rehabilitation. The DSNR is member of the World Federation for NeuroRehabilitation (WFNR).

The Belgian Society for NeuroRehabilitation (BSNR) is a young society that aims at bringing together all clinicians and researchers interested in neurorehabilitation: PMR specialists, neurologists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists and neuropsychologists. The BSNR attempts to promote contacts and collaboration between all these specialties.  Our society is member of the World Federation for NeuroRehabilitation (WFNR).

We collaborate with the DSNR for the organization of the Neurorehabilitation and Neural Repair congress, each two years. The next congress will be organised in May 2019 in Maastricht. We also organise several symposia in Belgium.  The last one welcomed 150 participants in 2016 at the Cliniques universitaires Saint-Luc - Brussels.  The next symposium will be held at the KU Leuven on November 17th 2018.

The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Neurotraumatologie und klinische Neurorehabilitation e.V. - (DGNKN) is the far oldest society in Germany that aims at bringing together all clinicians and researchers interested in neurorehabilitation: PMR specialists, neurologists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists and neuropsychologists. The DGNKN attempts to promote contacts and collaboration between all these specialties. 

We collaborate with the DSNR for the organization of the Neurorehabilitation and Neural Repair congress, each two years. We also organize several symposia in Germany, some of them together with the other German society DGNR.

 

ACPIN continuously works to advance knowledge and practice in neurological rehabilitation; formed 45 years ago, it is now one of the largest physiotherapy groups in the UK. ACPIN supports high-quality, up-to-date clinical research and evidence-based training in neurorehabilitation.

ACPIN’s aim is to promote best practice for best outcomes by facilitating dialog between patients and carers, healthcare professionals, healthcare providers and Government. ACPIN uses its power and influence to promote high quality, evidence-based neurorehabilitation for the wider community, including carers, researchers, patients and professionals. Through the generation and sharing of new knowledge, ACPIN ensures the advancement of neurorehabilitation to achieve a better quality of life for people with neurological conditions. ‚Äč
