The congress was really impressive and fantastic, the most attended neurology meeting that ever took place in Europe with almost 6,000 participants! There were a lot of interesting symposia, presentations, teaching courses, and focused workshops, and often it was hard to choose the one to attend, out of the many running at the same time. Updates on neurogenetics, peripheral neuropathies, movement disorders and new horizons in therapy were the most exciting talks I could listen to. But what I believe is the most extraordinary result of the meeting is the birth of the novel European society, and I am happy that there is a new well representative Board. With best wishes to the novel EAN.

It has been extremely gratifying to experience the breadth and width of high-level clinical and basic neurological science presented at this joint congress, which certainly justifies the joining of the EFNS and the ENS to lift academic Neurology to new high levels in Europe. The organization of the congress has been excellent, and in spite of many excellent parallel sessions, they were all well attended even at the end of the congress. This is cause for optimism and bears testimony to the expertise of invited speakers. Both oral and poster sessions presented new data, in most by young investigators, and this should also be a major goal of upcoming meetings of the EAN
