WFNR Franz Gerstenbrand Award 2022

Brain Awareness Week – WFNR Franz Gerstenbrand Award 2022 now open for entries

As we mark Brain Awareness Week, I’m delighted to announce that the World Federation for Neurorehabilitation (WFNR) Franz Gerstenbrand Award 2022 is now open, and we particularly encourage entries from individuals under the age of 35 years who are clinicians, researchers or allied health professionals currently working in neurorehabilitation.       

Professor David Good, WFNR President

The Award, worth £3,000, is open to WFNR members and non-members and recognises and rewards a neurorehabilitation project that has benefitted patients.  It is named after Professor Franz Gerstenbrand in recognition of his contribution to neurorehabilitation.

Entries for the WFNR Award must demonstrate a difference to patient outcomes and can involve any aspect of neurorehabilitation, such as a patient or clinic management initiative, research project, best practice development or the use of a new technological development.   The work described must be completed and produced results or been published in the last 12 months.

The Award is for a travel bursary to a clinical/scientific conference, professional development course or research project.  The deadline for the Award is the 31st October 2022.
