Chair of the EPNS Scientific and Research Committee: Barbara Plecko
The main role of the EPNS Scientific and Research Committee is to advise on the scientific programme of the biennial EPNS Congress, as well as symposia or sessions organised, or co-organised, by the EPNS within scientific meetings of other societies (eg. European Academy of Childhood Disability, EACD). The Scientific Committee also organises workshops, usually attached to congresses, aimed at the development of guidelines for diagnosis and/or treatment trials in specific pathologies.
EPNS Research Meetings
Another important activity of the EPNS Scientific Committee is the development of a EPNS Research Meeting in Paediatric Neurology, held every two years, alternate to the EPNS Congresses. The meeting enables 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.
