In 2024, the European Academy of Neurology (EAN) will reach a significant milestone, as we commemorate a decade of hard work on behalf of the neurology community and patients. Our 10th-anniversary celebrations will be notable throughout the year, including a range of special activities and a big celebration at our annual congress in Helsinki.
Over the past ten years, the EAN has been a pivotal force in advancing neurological research and education, fostering collaboration, and promoting excellence in patient care. Our annual meetings have served as a cornerstone, providing an invaluable platform for neurologists across borders to exchange knowledge and build enduring professional and personal relationships. The dedication of our esteemed presidents and committed board members, as well as the numerous contributors to committees, subcommittees, and the EAN Scientific & Coordinating Panels, has been instrumental in shaping the EAN into the influential organisation it is today. Many of the people who began the journey with us in 2014 are still closely involved ten years later and continue to help us pave the way forward.
As we embark on this significant anniversary year, we extend an invitation to all our members and friends to get involved in the festivities. At the annual congress in Helsinki, several activities will include an EAN sticker album, with stickers covering various EAN-related topics to collect at different stations throughout the venue. Engagement opportunities are also planned throughout the year, beginning with an exciting essay contest with a time-travelling theme, which will be announced later this month.
Of course, you can already ensure that you are part of the celebration by registering now for the EAN Congress 2024 in Helsinki and signing up for the special networking event we will be holding on 1 July! Early bird fees for the congress are available until 24 April, with additional reductions for EAN members.
Together, let us celebrate a decade of progress, unity, and commitment to advancing neurological knowledge and patient care. Here’s to the next ten years of continued excellence!
