Marie Vidailhet, EAN Scientific Committee Chair
During the last meeting of the Board, it has been decided that the current Rare neurological diseases task force, founded in 2016, will be transformed into the first EAN Coordinating Panel.
The Panel will consist of up to two representatives from each Scientific Panel who will form a core group. This will allow each subspecialty to be represented.
The Coordinating Panel is of course open also to our Individual members who are interested in rare neurological diseases.
The activities of the Panel, which will correspond with those of the Scientific Panels, will be supervised by a Management Group (MG), elected out of interested core group members.
The MG elections will take place after the Management Groups of the Scientific Panels are settled (expected in December 2019) and after the members of the Coordinating panel have been nominated.
By turning the task force into a permanent part of the EAN structure with a defined set of rules, tasks and privileges, we recognise the importance of this field.
