The important scientific event is organized by the ESPRM and the Lithuanian Society of PRM (LPMFR) in cooperation with the UEMS-PRM Section and Board and the European Academy of Rehabilitation Medicine.

The meeting will take place from 1 to 6 May 2018 at Litexpo - Congress Center, and it will be the second European Congress organized in accordance with the new rules and regulations of the ECPRM.

We are working hard to organise an outstanding scientific and educational congress, to facilitate the spread and exchange of knowledge, skills and attitudes, between experts, researchers, clinicians and trainees, and aiming to continue developing the ESPRM and PRM in Europe.

We will do our best for having the active participation of the most prestigious European/International professionals with clinical expertise and scientific recognition.

The Committees of the ESPRM will have a very active role in the scientific program in close collaboration with the UEMS-PRM Section and Board, the European Academy of Rehabilitation Medicine. The ISPRM and other international PRM Organizations, including the Baltic - Nordic Forum of PRM, the Mediterranean Forum of PRM, the National Societies from Europe, will also be involved. We are very happy that we can count on the experience of the colleagues that organized the previous ECPRM.

The Associations of allied professionals and NGOs working on behalf of people with disabilities, will participate in this congress to help analyze models of comprehensive rehabilitation.

The social program will be carefully planned. You will feel warmly received in Vilnius and Lithuania.
