EBC was present again this year at the Congress of the European Academy of Neurology, marking their 5th year of annual congresses. This year the congress was held in Oslo, Norway, and EBC was pleased to be able to participate in the Exhibition Hall as well as in the Scientific Theatre and EFNA-EAN Special Session.
The EBC Exhibition Stand was filled with materials this year – new and old – with a new EBC and EBRA brochure now available as well as the Value of Treatment, MULTI-ACT, MS Policy Narrative, Brain Mission and Election Manifesto documents readily available.
The Scientific Theatre provided a more relaxed area of presentation, and EBC was able to coordinate the presentation of both its current major projects, MULTI-ACT and EBRA.
As Project Coordinators, EBC presented EBRA, providing a general introduction of the project and the next steps to come to an audience of clinicians, industry and patients.
MULTI-ACT was presented by consortium member, Dr. Marcin Kautsch.
Lastly, EBC was also invited to speak at the EFNA-EAN Joint Symposium, “Norwegian Brain Strategy: a plan to strengthen brain health in Europe“. Prof. Hachinski gave the opening presentation on the Global Brain Alliance, with is working to increase the recognition of the growing burden of brain disorders worldwide, and EBC Executive Director, Frédéric Destrebecq, gave insight into the development of national brain plans as a growing necessity as tools for pushing the brain to the top of the EU agenda, and how the network of National Brain Councils can play a role in this.
