Welcome to the European Paediatric Neurology Society

Welcome to the European Paediatric Neurology Society (EPNS)! A society for physicians with a research or clinical interest in Paediatric Neurology.

With more than 1,100 members, the EPNS is a thriving and growing society which continues to play an important role in and beyond Europe by promoting training, clinical care and scientific research in the field of Paediatric Neurology.
It is an honour for me to serve as the President of the EPNS for a further term (2014-2018) and it is with delight that I see the EPNS drive forward from strength to strength in attaining its aims. Our dynamic members of the EPNS Board are  dedicated to developing paediatric neurology, to give training and education to our younger colleagues at the highest level and to start new scientific and vibrant collaborations throughout Europe and beyond.

I invite you to explore our website to learn more about our exciting events and initiatives, and there is more to come! I would especially draw your attention the ‘Education and Training’ section to learn more about our training courses taking place in Hungary during 2015-2017, our EPNS 2015 Master Class in Cambridge, UK and our EPNS Fellowship scheme.

In May 2015, we welcomed over 1,100 delegates from approx. 70 countries to our 1st EPNS International Symposium and 11th EPNS Congress in Vienna. The meetings were a huge success and surpassed all expectations with an outstanding scientific programme and excellent networking opportunities. Plans are already in the pipeline for the 12th EPNS Congress which will be taking place in Lyon, France, 20-24 June 2017, and I am sure this will at least match the quality of our last meeting, so remember to mark the date in your 2017 diary! Our Congresses are held every 2 years, and in the alternate years we host a Research Meeting. These meetings have an established reputation for excellence and it is with pleasure we will be hosting the next Research Meeting in Essen, Germany, on 28-29 October 2016.

Of course if you are not already a member of the EPNS and you are a physician with a research or clinical interest in Paediatric Neurology, we would be delighted to welcome you to our Society. It’s easy to join – just select the ‘Membership’ tab above and complete our on-line application form. Any queries whatsoever, please do not hesitate to email info@epns.info

Education & Training

The EPNS has a programme of training courses to offer fellows and (young) paediatric neurologists the opportunity to learn paediatric neurology at a level prescribed by the Syllabus of the EPNS, to meet experts in the field and to exchange knowledge and personal experience. These are two-day courses at a location that can be easily reached at a relatively low cost. There will be a written examination at the end of the course. Because of the interactive character of the course, there is an upper limit of around 75 participants.
