The EFORT Congress Scientific Awards are selected among the many high-quality abstracts submitted to the congress. Traditionally, EFORT awards every year the Free Paper and Jacques Duparc (poster) Awards, as well as the the Michael Freeman Award since 2018.

The 40 best-rated free papers, 20 each in orthopaedics and trauma, were given the option of competing for the EFORT Free Paper Award. Among all submitted presentations, the EFORT Award Committee select 3 winners in each of the two categories: gold, silver and bronze. On top of international recognition by peers, award winners also receive a financial reward. 

We strongly believe that the EFORT Awards annual competition contributes to engage more attendees in regards to the development of the scientific content and to create a research culture within the O&T community.
