The work done by the European Board of Neurology (EBN) is impressive and the EFNS is very grateful. If the EBN did not exist the EFNS would have had to invent it and do the work ourselves. As it is we enjoy an intimate relationship with EBN. Two members of the EFNS sit on the EBN, Dr Marianne de Visser and Dr David Vodušek, and we have invited the President of the EBN to attend and speak to the Council of the EFNS in September in Stockholm. Clearly the training of our neurologists is of the utmost importance to European neurology. The care with which the EBN revised Chapter 6 of its educational charter incorporating the neurology training curriculum deserves our applause and thanks.
