Research Prize 2018 of the Fürst Donnersmarck Foundation

The Board of Trustees of the Fürst Donnersmarck Foundation Berlin, a foundation dedicated to the rehabilitation of persons with physical and multiple disabilities, awards a research prize for neurorehabilitation on a triennial basis.

The prize is awarded to current scientific research work in the field of neurological rehabilitation of persons with acquired damage to the nervous system. The work should focus on post-clinical long-term rehabilitation. The prize recognises interdisciplinary rehabilitation strategies and methods, as well as the examination of scientific effectiveness and efficiency (outcome research), and how these developments meet the special needs of rehabilitation providers, funding bodies and political institutions (socio-economic effects). Works from the recent field of participation research, which directly include persons with disabilities in the research process, will be treated with particular consideration.

The total prize money of EUR 30,000 can be distributed between more than one winner.

Applications must be submitted by 30 June 2018.
