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

With more than 1,600 members, 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.

It is a special honour and a privilege to serve my term as President of the EPNS. With my EPNS board colleagues we are engaged in strategic planning to continue the excellent achievements made so far and reaching our priority to promote training, clinical care and scientific research in the field of Paediatric Neurology. To this end, I urge you to become involved with EPNS and spread the word to your colleagues encouraging them to join us. Our committees are excited by the opportunity to serve this vibrant organisation.

The CNA is a forum on which all paediatric neurology societies in Europe are represented and provides a channel for communication between the EPNS Board and National Societies with 2 representatives from the C N A co-opted to the EPNS Board.

Please take a moment to look at our 3rd EPNS Annual Report to learn about our recent achievements.
