This year, everything was different with the EAN Virtual Congress. Under normal circumstances, there would have been two teams competing in front of a live audience, who could vote themselves via the congress app and actively participate in the Quiz.
In order to still present the 16 cases (Challenges) the committee has selected, the EAN BrainChallenge also went virtual – as a four-day online quiz.
We are very happy to announce that 1581 people participated in the online game, and that 680 people finished all 16 challenges. Out of these, 24 have finished all 16 challenges without a mistake.
We want to congratulate the winner with the highest score of 8570 points to a free congress registration for the 7th EAN congress next year in Vienna, June 19-22, 2021:
Julia Poljakova from Zilina, Slovakia “CONGRATULATIONS”
The other 23 persons, who have also finished without making a mistake, but with less points will also receive a prize and contacted in the next days.
Alexandru Gasnas, Jesus Alberto, Mária Ondrušová, Anna Alekseeva, Gabriela Mafra, Francesco Paolo Bonifacio, Martina Parizkova, Marie Préel, Petala Ribeiro, Fathi Abokalawa, Allan Barcena, Katrin Koziol, Khengaoui El hadj, Zuzana Tomasova, Paulo Victor Sgobbi Souza, Mohamed Khalil, Saikat Ghosh, Patricia Tian, Ifeanyi Paul Paul-Orekie Paweł Kram, Shahedah Koya Kutty, Jean-Loup Méreaux, Milica Jecmenica Lukic
We hope you enjoyed the BrainChallenge and look forward to welcoming you in person next year in Vienna, where a local team will compete against an international team.
We also would like to thank all those who submitted cases for the EAN BrainChallenge.
