Claudio Bassetti, President of the EAN and Pietre Van Doorn, President of the PNS are pleased to announce that:
EAN signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the PNS – Peripheral Nerve Society joining forces to promote optimal cooperation in Europe between both societies.
The Peripheral Nerve Society aims at investigate and treat diseases of the peripheral nervous system. Its activities support basic and clinical research, education, and standards of care in cooperation with patients and those developing treatments for diseases of the peripheral nervous system. This collaboration aims at enhancing education and scientific endeavours. Jointly, the two organizations will be able to lobby more effectively in Brussels for the recognition of the importance of gender issues in brain diseases 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: PNS is invited to submit session proposals
Endorsement of meetings: through application module
Optimizing Education: educational activities related to a common topic will be organized
The two societies’ mutual aspirations are complementary and fit well together.
