12:30 – 13:30  Friday, 11 April 2014
Sultan 2, Istanbul Lütfi Kırdar International Convention & Exhibition, Istanbul, Turkey

We hereby invite all WCNR participants with affiliation to a Nordic country to participate in this seminar which is part of a process of establishing a formal Nordic Network in Neurorehabilitation.
In addition to obvious geographical reasons, we consider the common cultural and historic background and the quite similar societal structures as important reasons for further collaboration.
