Virtual EFORT Congress 2021 - VEChybrid

EFORT Honorary Awards 2021

Prof. Freddie H. Fu

Prof. Dr. Reinhard Windhager

Dr. Gilles Walch

Each year during its annual congress, EFORT distinguishes those, whether lay or professional, who have made an outstanding contribution to EFORT and/or the Orthopaedic community.

This year EFORT honoured three very renowned orthopaedic surgeons, all of them having done tremendous efforts towards further developing O&T techniques and ultimately improving patient safety. 

EFORT is pleased to announce that this year’s Honorary Awards were presented to Professor Freddie H. Fu (United States), Professor Reinhard Windhager (Austria), and Doctor Gilles Walch (France).

EFORT Congress Scientific Awards 2021

A congress is always as good as its presentations are: in this regard the EFORT annual Congress can always rely on the contributions of experts all over Europe and worldwide. 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. 3 winners were chosen by the EFORT Award Committee in each of the two categories.

Amongst 30 pre-selected competing posters accepted for presentation within the Virtual EFORT Congress scientific programme, the 10 best-rated submissions receive the Jacques Duparc Award, which includes a grant of EUR 250 and a certificate to acknowledge the work of each co-author having contributed to the abstract content.
