We have an honour to invite you, on behalf of EFRR, to 13th Congress of European Forum for Research in Rehabilitation, which will be held in Marina Congress Center, Helsinki, Finland on 6-9 May 2015.

The purpose of EFRR is to advance research and education in biopsychosocial aspects of rehabilitation. The outcomes of such research are implemented and disseminated with the aim of improving both the provision of social, vocational, health-care and rehabilitation services and the standards of practice in these services, for the benefit of people with disabilities.

The theme of the congress is “Being, Doing, Participating” referring to WHO International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health. The congress is providing an arena with a wide spectrum of different fields in the rehabilitation research.

The congress will provide shared knowledge to be used in human health, new scientific research, and for the improvement of educational efforts in rehabilitation. We will concentrate in both, scientific and practical issues.

We warmly welcome you to participate in the EFRR 2015 Congress!
