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).

The general aim of the meeting is to support especially young researchers to meet their colleagues in the field for an exchange in order to facilitate collaboration and to extend or to build up research networks. The detailed programme for each meeting will be decided between the hosting

The programme is structured as follows:

Parallel sessions for several (currently eight) working groups (approximately 3 hours). Invited plenary lectures of interest to all working groups to be organized by two working groups (4 – 6 lectures, 30 min. per lecture).
