Announcing the PRM Italy Award at the 52nd National SIMFER Congress


We are thrilled to announce a new highlight of the 52nd National SIMFER Congress, happening in Padua from October 6-9, 2024—the PRM Italy Award! This exciting award will recognize the top three scientific abstracts presented in English by young researchers, under 40, who are members of SIMFER. Launched by this year's Congress President and jointly sponsored by the College of Professors of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine and SIMFER, the award promises to bring the best of innovative research to the forefront.

Winners will present their research during the congress sessions at the 52th SIMFER Congress in Padua, gaining valuable exposure and recognition. If your abstract doesn't win, don't worry! It can still shine as a communication or poster presentation, provided you're registered for the congress. Remember, abstracts submitted for this award should be unique and not submitted elsewhere within the conference topics.

Your abstract must be written in English and the various info on how to structure it are available on this page

Who can enter? If you're a SIMFER member under 40 at the time of submission and have original research not previously published or submitted elsewhere (excluding literature reviews and study protocols), you're eligible. The deadline for submission is June 30, 2024.

Your abstract will be judged through a blind review process by a joint committee from the College of Professors of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine and SIMFER. They will assess the scientific and clinical quality, interest for SIMFER members, interdisciplinary nature, relevance and innovation, contribution to rehabilitation science, clarity and coherence, methodology and statistical approach, originality, clinical implications, and adherence to ethical principles in research.

Get ready to showcase your research and compete for the PRM Italy Award! We look forward to seeing your innovative work and wish all our talented young researchers the best of luck.
