Preview 1st Congress of the European Academy of Neurology

Conference details: June 20-23, 2015, Berlin, Germany.

The European Academy of Neurology (EAN) is the organisation that unites and supports neurologists across the whole of Europe. Currently, 45 European national neurological societies as well as 800 individuals are registered members of the EAN. Thus, the EAN represents more than 21,000 European neurologists.

We are pleased to invite you to this great event on behalf of the EAN and the German Society of Neurology. Today, Berlin is one of the world’s most vibrant capitals, with an impressive cultural, scientific and economic scene. The city is also emerging as the centre of German healthcare, last but not least due to the Charité Hospital, the largest clinic in Europe, counting 3200 beds and 7000 medical and healthcare students and many medical research institutes.

Berlin has a long neurological history. It was here that Moritz Heinrich Romberg wrote the ‘Lehrbuch der Nervenkrankheiten des Menschen’, a frontier breaking mid-19th century textbook which is seen as the foundation of modern neurology. Almost 25 years after the fall of the wall, the once divided city of Berlin today symbolises peaceful revolution, the overthrow of outworn systems and the venture into a new political era. A series of neurological history in Germany can be found in our newsletter here. The 1st Congress of the EAN will also write European neurological history. EAN is the joint subsequent organisation of the EFNS (European Federation of Neurological Societies) and ENS (European Neurological Society), and thereby the first united voice of European Neurology. This founding act was celebrated on June 3rd, 2014 at the Joint Congress of European Neurology in Istanbul. The first congress of this new society will be celebrated in the united Berlin.

The EAN Congress in Berlin will provide the ideal platform for continuing education in all fields of neurology, covering a broad spectrum of topics with state-of-the-art lectures by renowned experts. The EAN is dedicated to providing the highest quality of continuing medical education and to opening professional education opportunities.
