The Hanneke van Bruggen Lecture was created at the 16th Annual ENOTHE 2010 Meeting at Stockholm, Sweden, in honour of Hanneke Van Bruggen then, the outgoing Director of ENOTHE. In creating the Hanneke van Bruggen Lecture, the ENOTHE board wished to recognise and honour Hanneke Van Bruggen for her unending dedication and outstanding work in promoting occupational therapy in Europe and internationally.
The ENOTHE Board is pleased to inform that the external panel, that reviewed all nominations, has awarded the 2023 Hanneke van Bruggen Lecture to Salvador Simó.
