The EAN may endorse proposals from other organizations as for example: scientific programmes from international or national meetings and conferences organized by other neurology related organizations or national neurological societies, policy statements related to neurology from other European or international organizations and publications from other organizations.
The EAN will endorse proposals according to the EAN Endorsement policy document. This document states that EAN will support initiatives that are consistent with and relevant to the visions and missions of EAN after evaluation of scientific and ethical aspects.
The application form for EAN endorsement, available at the EAN website, should be sent no later than 4 weeks prior to the event to the EAN head quarter by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org . All applications submitted for EAN endorsement will then be reviewed for approval by the Quality Assurance Sub-Committee of EAN.
