Welcome Letter

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

The President of the 22nd European Congress of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine 2020 and the President of the European Society of PRM have a privilege and great pleasure to invite you to the 22nd European Congress of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine (ESPRM 2020) which is to be held in Belgrade, Serbia.

ESPRM 2020 is the major PRM event happening in Europe in 2020. Parallel to it, 20th Annual Congress of SAPRM will be held providing the participants with an opportunity to learn about the Serbian rehabilitation system in more detail. The Congress will take place from 19th to 23rs September, 2020 at Hotel Crowne Plaza, Belgrade.

The motto of this ESPRM Congress 2020 is “Rehabilitation: Key for health in the 21st century”, since health systems in the 21st century face new challenges, as people live longer and with a higher degree of disability, it is necessary to strengthen health systems to provide rehabilitation services that  ensure people not only live longer but live better.

This important scientific event is organized by the ESPRM and the SAPRM, in cooperation with the UEMS-PRM Section and Board, the European Academy of Rehabilitation Medicine with the support of the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts and the Medical Faculty University of Belgrade. The International Society of PRM (ISPRM) and other international PRM Organizations, including the Cochrane Rehabilitation, the Mediterranean Forum of PRM, the Baltic – Nordic Forum of PRM, the National Societies from Europe, will also participate. We are very happy to be able to count on the experience of the colleagues that organized the previous European Congresses.

Sessions will be given by the top experts on Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine with an emphasis on workshops, hands-on demonstrations and opportunities to meet and network. We will do our best to gain active participation of the most prestigious European and International professionals with clinical expertise and scientific recognition.


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


We look forward to meeting you in Belgrade, 2020, where we are sure you will contribute significantly to the success of the congress with your participation.
