Welcome to the European Paediatric Neurology Society (EPNS)! A society for physicians with a research or clinical interest in Paediatric Neurology.

The EPNS is a thriving and growing society which continues to play an important role in and beyond Europe by promoting training, clinical care and scientific research in the field of Paediatric Neurology. In March 2015, I was thrilled to learn that for the first time we have over 1,000 EPNS members.

It is an honour for me to serve as the President of the EPNS for a further term (2014-2018) and it is with delight that I see the EPNS drive forward from strength to strength in attaining its aims. Our dynamic members of the EPNS Board are  dedicated to developing paediatric neurology, to give training and education to our younger colleagues at the highest level and to start new scientific and vibrant collaborations throughout Europe and beyond.

I invite you to explore our website to learn more about our exciting events and initiatives, and there is more to come! I would especially draw your attention the ‘Education and Training’ tab above to learn more about our training courses taking place in Hungary during 2015-2017, our EPNS 2015 Master Class in Cambridge, UK and our EPNS 2015 Fellowship scheme.  Not forgetting our 11th EPNS Congress from 27-30 May 2015 in Austria. For more details about our Congress, you can visit http://www.epns2015.org/ Also, for the first time the EPNS will be hosting an International Symposium on Advances in Neuromodulation in Children and this will be taking place from 25-26 May 2015, just before the congress in Vienna and is now fully subscribed.

The EPNS Board recently had the pleasure of offering Honorary EPNS membership to 5 of our colleagues for their out-standing contribution to the field of paediatric neurology.  I am delighted to say that all 5 colleagues have accepted this distinction, and their details can be found by selecting ‘honorary’ on the ‘Home’ tab. Congratulations to our 5 worthy new honorary members!

Of course if you are not already a member of the EPNS and you are a physician with a research or clinical interest in Paediatric Neurology, we would be delighted to welcome you to our Society. It’s easy to join – just select the ‘Membership’ tab above and complete our on-line application form. Any queries whatsoever, please do not hesitate to email info@epns.info
