Latest activities

Last year the EANS educational portfolio grew larger and more diverse, as more educational events were organised than ever, while touching a range of new topics that were taught by elite scientists of European Neurosurgery.

The EANS 2022 Belgrade Congress will remain in the EANS history as a legacy event. The programme included 11 plenary and 13 parallel sessions, 20 masterclasses, and 10 pre-congress symposia. The EANS family welcomed 1400 delegates from 83 countries, 42 exhibitors, 423 faculty speakers and oral abstract presenters, and 658 e-Poster presenters who delivered lectures of outstanding quality and interest. Having set extremely high standards after a spectacular Congress in Belgrade, the EANS2023 Congress will take place from 24 to 28 September in Barcelona.

Brain & Spine, the official journal of EANS and EUROSPINE celebrated its one-year birthday in July. What began as an exciting project has evolved into a truly revolutionary endeavor, aiming to make a huge impact in the neurosurgical and spine community. The Journal was recently indexed in PubMed, and therefore all articles published in Brain and Spine are now automatically uploaded to the journal’s website and to the PMC database.

This year at the EANS 2022 Congress in Belgrade, the EANS Foundation for Research in Neurological Surgery was officially introduced to the global neurosurgical community. This new foundation has the strict goal to provide a legally viable and transparent way for potential donators to support research activities in any neurosurgical domain, to support specific educational activities, and to fund initiatives for the improvement of care in a pre-defined context.

The Young Neurosurgeons Network: It finally happened and we couldn’t be more excited: The Young Neurosurgeons Network is up and running since our EANS2022 Belgrade Congress, when it was officially launched. The network aims to become the number 1 connecting platform of young neurosurgeons in Europe and empower every young professional in neurosurgery to achieve more, get better training, and more education.
