The Virtual EFORT Congress 2021 Opening Premiere

EFORT’s Opening Première: between Green Orthopaedics and the good of Innovation

On 29 June 2021 EFORT is hosting its Opening Première for the very first time, one day prior to the start of the scientific sessions featured in this year’s Virtual EFORT Congress VEChybrid  2021.

Our distinguished guests are Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission, Freddie Fu from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, USA and our Awardees for the EFORT Honorary Award. 

The EFORT President, Congress Presidents and the members of the VEChybrid 2021 Steering Group warmly invite you to participate to this unique opening.

In her Welcome Address, President von der Leyen touches on The European Green Deal, also in acknowledgement of the main theme which is “Sustainable Professional Practice”.

Freddie Fu puts 40 years of learning on ACL under the perspective of Innovation and its benefits, and will lead us through his quest of asking ourselves if The Latest Is Always The Greatest.

Following these inspiring words, the Award Ceremony will close this opening session; Reinhard Windhager (Vienna, Austria), Gilles Walch (Lyon, France) and Freddie Fu (Pittsburgh, USA) will be awarded the EFORT Honorary Award, one of the highest recognition acknowledgements within the EFORT fraternity.

Mark your diary and join our guests for the Opening Première. This event will be open access and requires NO registration.
