European Research Meeting in Paediatric Neurology

This meeting is intended to enable researchers in various fields of Paediatric Neurology to meet colleagues in the same field in order to facilitate collaboration, and to foster the building of research networks. The first meeting took place in October 3 – 4, 2008 in Tübingen, Germany in collaboration with the German speaking Paediatric Neurology Society (GNP). This meeting was formerly run as “Wissenschaftliche Statuskonferenz” of the GNP (German-speaking Society of Paediatric Neurology).
