The European Congress of Neurosurgery 2022 (EANS2022) took place on 16-20 October in Belgrade, Serbia. The European Association of Neurosurgical Societies (EANS) is both an independent federation of European national neurosurgical societies and a fast-developing association of individual neurosurgeons from around the world.
The Congress theme – Trends, Insights, Innovations: Neurosurgery beyond Technology – addressed the complex relation between technological advances and human ingenuity in the field of neurosurgery. The age of rapid technological progress, artificial intelligence, machine learning and virtual reality in the 21st century has brought many benefits to neurosurgery, but also many challenges.
After two turbulent pandemic years, the Congress in Belgrade represented the regathering of European and world experts in neurosurgery. It provided an excellent opportunity for sharing experiences and exchanging ideas through the top-level scientific program, aimed at providing a comprehensive insight into these benefits and challenges and striking the right balance between technology and human (neurosurgeons’) touch.
EBC President, Prof. Wolfgang Oertel, was pleased to take part in the congress and present “EBC and the Brain Policies in Europe” during a plenary “Brain & Spine, The Official Journal of EANS & EUROSPINE” on 19 October 2022 at 13:50-14:30.
