The 5th European Congress on Physiotherapy Education is now Online


To adapt to the current situation, following the global disruption caused by the pandemic of Covid-19, the Project Board of the 5th European Congress, with full regard to preserve the scientific value of the abstracts already submitted, and considering the health and safety concerns for participants, has decided to host the ER-WCPT 2020 Congress as an online event.

For the first time, the European Region Congress is being held as an entirely online meeting that offers the physiotherapists community the possibility for educational exchanges and scientific news.

The online platform has been launched on the 11th of September 2020, the same date on which the congress would normally have taken place in Leuven, Belgium. All presentations shall remain visible to the registered participants for almost 5 months, until the 31st of January 2021. You can register for this online event at any time within the given timeframe.



Join the Congress and be part of this memorable European Region of WCPT event. Registration fees have been significantly reduced as to offer each and everyone the possibility to join in for this last month: registration fee will be just 70 euros for EVERYONE starting 1st January 2021!

In Belgium, the Congress will be accredited for participation by Pro-Q-Kine: 24 units (NE) for the whole congress.

Online Platform

All presentations are available for viewing via an online platform that remains visible to the registered participants for almost 5 months, until the 31st of January 2021. This means that participants are able to view all the presentations, including Keynotes and Focused Symposia. Participants have the possibility to submit questions to presenters and to view a Q&A session with the Keynote speakers and Focused Symposia.

Whilst acknowledging that face-to-face interactions are very valuable and sought in terms of our social professional identity, this modification to the original plan provides an exciting opportunity for participants from all over the world to join in, without the barrier of travelling time, days lost from work or time zone differences. Participants are able to view all presentations (instead of having to choose between different parallel sessions) and can visit every presentation as many times as they want within the given timeframe.
