The European Academy of Neurology (EAN) Brain Health Strategy will greatly contribute to the resilience of Europe’s Healthcare system by not only reducing the burden of chronic neurological disorders, such as Alzheimer’s Disease, stroke, epilepsy, through a preventive medicine approach but by further enhancing treatment and rehabilitation through more neurology research. In collaboration with its 47 national neurological societies and its more than 45,000 members, it aims to integrate a ‘One brain, one life, one approach’ into neurology care across Europe.
As COVID-19 continues to test the resilience of Europe’s healthcare systems, it is vital to ease the growing burden of neurological disorders. The recent development of National Brain Health Plans in several EU members states has brought much needed political momentum to this issue, and with Brain Health being brought to the EU agenda via the 2022- 2023 Trio presidency, it is sure to feature as key component of healthcare strategy in the near future.
This event will address the following key questions:
- What is brain health & how does it relate to neurology and other fields of healthcare?
- How can an approach centred on Brain Health improve healthcare outcomes in Europe?
- What is the current landscape of Brain Health initiatives in Europe?
- What is the future for Brain Health in the EU?

We are delighted to welcome you back to the historic city of Vienna for the 8th Congress of the European Academy of Neurology (EAN), on June 25-28, 2022!
The 8th EAN Congress will be a truly pan-European meeting, bringing together neurologists and neuro-scientists to network and exchange knowledge to tackle major challenges in neurology. In previous years EAN congresses have highlighted the developments in the host nation, but in 2022, following virtual congresses in 2020 and 2021, we will break with that tradition. We have planned a meeting with a pan-European flavor, celebrating the opportunity to meet once more in person in a hybrid meeting that will also maximise virtual participation, building on our experience in 2020 and 2021.
Our overarching theme for EAN 2022 is ‘Getting Evidence Into Practice’. Topics will include: Which clinical trial designs best inform practice? What evidence informs the use of diagnostic tests? Are guidelines a useful tool for improving outcomes? How do we get guidelines applied and implemented? These questions are timely and relevant, and we are excited to hear from selected experts from neurology and other disciplines.

We look forward to seeing you to Vienna!
