EPR Innovation Prize


Celebrating mutual learning and continuous improvement



The Innovation Prize concept was developed by the EPR to encourage the circulation of information on innovation and best practice, and rewards the best practice shared within the EPR network.

The product catalogue developed in 2016 allows EPR members and their staff to obtain without costs hands-on expertise in rehabilitation methodologies and tools and it increase therefore the relevance and the added value of the EPR membership.



The difficulty lies not in new ideas, but in escaping from the old ones.



The contest is open to all professionals working in an EPR member organisation. Applicants can submit a practice from their organisation that they feel to be particularly innovative and useful for the service users. The best practice can be of any type (a service, a programme, a methodology, a tool, etc...) and related to all areas of service provided by EPR members.


One application can be submitted on behalf of an individual or a team. Organisations are of course welcomed to submit more than one good practice!
