EAN / EPA Memorandum of Understanding signed
Prof. Claudio Bassetti, President of the EAN and Prof. Philip Gorwood, President of the EPA are pleased to announce that:
EAN signed a Memorandum of Understanding with EPA – European Psychiatric Association joining forces to promote optimal cooperation in Europe between both societies.
The European Psychiatric Association is the leading association representing psychiatry in Europe. Its activities address the interests of psychiatrists in academia, research and practice throughout all stages of career development.
This collaboration aims to enhance education and scientific endeavors to the importance of psychiatric care within the field of neurology in Europe. Jointly, the two organizations will be able to lobby more effectively in Brussels for the recognition of the importance and need for brain health and for strengthening funding for research in Europe.
The two societies have agreed to collaborate on the following specific activities to deliver this goal:
Scientific Conferences: EPA will be invited to submit session proposals
Best Practice Guidelines: nominate representatives for each other’s guidelines modules,
Optimizing Education: educational activities related to a common topic will be organized
The two societies’ mutual aspirations are complementary and fit well together.
