EAN Congress – 6th EAN Congress 2020 Goes Virtual

In the interest of the health, safety and well-being of all registered attendees, our patients and families, as well as the general public, 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.

Accordingly, the EAN Board has decided to organize the 6th EAN Congress as Virtual Congress for May 23-26, 2020 and offer press members the possibility for education, scientific news and best practice exchange without leaving home. All sessions will be available on-demand for EAN members from 27 May onwards.

The EAN Virtual Congress will cover all neurological diseases and disorders in a state-of-the-art Scientific Programme, including the big 7: epilepsy, stroke, headache, multiple sclerosis, dementia, movement disorders, neuromuscular disorders.
