Spring Congress 2023

Upper limb nerve lesion

Dear Friends & colleagues,

We are delighted to invite you to the upcoming Spring Congress of the Belgian HandGroup on the Upper limb
Nerve Lesion, which will take place on 01 June 23 in the beautiful Aula Magna (Louvain La Neuve).

Why a Thursday evening? World is changing!
Holding a congress on a Thursday evening is we hope a great way to improve the respect of the private life of
attendees. By scheduling the event in the evening, it allows individuals to attend after their regular work hours
and minimizes the impact on their personal time. Additionally, holding the congress on a weeknight rather than
a weekend means that people are less likely to have prior commitments such as family activities or weekend
Overall, holding a congress on a Thursday evening is a considerate and practical way to ensure that we can
increase the number of attendees, especially the young generation. By taking into account the demands of work and
personal schedules, we hope that it helps to create a more inclusive and accommodating environment for all
participants and gives new prospects for scientific society.

The congress is dedicated to exploring the latest advances in peripheral nerve lesion diagnosis, treatment and
. Our goal is to bring together surgeons & physiotherapists to exchange ideas, share their
experiences and foster collaboration between each of us.
The program includes a series of keynote speeches and panel discussions, as well as opportunities for
networking and interactive sessions. The topics covered in the congress will be of great interest to anyone
working in the fields of hand/upper limb surgery, rehabilitation, and related disciplines.
We will conclude by enjoying a reception and walking dinner.

We are confident that you will find the congress to be an inspiring and thought-provoking experience.

We look forward to welcoming you in Louvain la Neuve!

Best regards,

Pr. Olivier Barbier & Pr. Ilse Degreef & Pr. Xavier Libouton
