6th Congress of the European Academy of Neurology

6th EAN Congress 2020 Goes Virtual

Dear neurologists, other healthcare professionals, and neuroscientists,

Dear colleagues and friends

In the interest of the health, safety and well-being of all registered attendees, our patients and families, as well as the general public, the European Academy of Neurology (EAN) has decided to cancel all in-person attendance and face-to-face activities at the Annual Congress, of May 23-26, 2020 in Paris. This decision has been taken due to the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic and in full support of public authorities in Europe and the World in their effort to slow the spread of the disease.

Difficult times ask for creative and courageous solutions which may also open new avenues for a better future. We must stay positive, strong and united more than ever to come through this crisis. Accordingly, the EAN Board has decided to organize the 6th EAN Congress as Virtual Congress for May 23-26, 2020 and offer to the neurology community the possibility for education, scientific news and best practice exchange without leaving home.

The Corona pandemic is putting our society under an incredible health, emotional and economic burden. EAN has decided, with its industry partners, to make its contribution to mitigate the consequences of the pandemic in offering the on-line participation to the EAN Virtual Congress free-of-charge.

All sessions will be available on-demand for EAN members from 27 May onwards. If you have already registered for the EAN Paris 2020 Congress, your fees will be refunded.  

Details regarding the EAN Virtual Congress and registration will be announced in due course. Please do also visit our Frequently Asked Questions area.

Best wishes for good health to you, your families and your community.

Truly yours,

Claudio L. Bassetti

EAN Acting President
