A message by the EANS President Andreas Demetriades

Dear friends and colleagues,
It was another busy month in March, during which I had the opportunity to visit our colleagues at Charles University, Prague, where I was privileged to spend some time with trainees and staff as well as my generous hosts, David Netuka (chair of the department), and our Past President Vladimir Benes. It was also a pleasure to visit Cluj, Romania, and meet lots of aspiring neurosurgeons at the 10th Annual Masterclass, the quality of which was excellent

and inspirational too. Mid-March it was time to travel to Berne for the full day programme of the Swiss Neurospine meeting, where Enrico Tessitore was the perfect host. And from there I hopped for the weekend event on Cavernomas in Athens, masterfully put together by Kostas Fountas. The conclusion was consistent in all travels; that European neurosurgery is developing strongly in all corners of our continent and our Association is proud to be supporting all such activities.

We were very proud to successfully launch the first ever Spring Summit Meeting in Spine. This was a new endeavor by EANS & EUROSPINE, and it certainly proved to be a high-quality event and a fruitful collaboration. This “Tumor and Infection” event was held in Budapest between 31st March and 1st April, and all those that joined in enjoyed very interesting discussions delivered by a remarkable speakers line-up. I would like to thank the participants and the industry partners for their support in this new exciting project, one of many more to come.

Preparations for our EANS2023 Barcelona Congress are in full speed, and until mid-April we will be announcing the evaluation outcome for the record-breaking number of 1660 abstracts submitted. More than 50 industry partners have already booked their participation to our exhibition – and I would like to invite all interested industry parties to reach out to our congress team soon, as not many booths are still available to book.

If you did not manage to submit your abstract for our congress, you can still submit for our Young Neurosurgeons Meeting which will take place in June, and/or our Vascular Meeting, to be held in September. Abstract submission is up and running for these two events but will be concluded in April, so I urge you to prepare your work, submit, and join us in Madrid and Marseille.

A big thank you goes to our young researchers; more than 65 applications were submitted to our annual Research Fund programme. The review process is ongoing, and I must admit it will be quite challenging to choose the winners, as the quality of the applications received is extremely high.

As always, our webinar series continues with weekly webinars, which you are invited to join, always free of charge.

With wishes for a happy and healthy Easter celebration for you and your families, do browse through our April Newsletter topics and remain connected through our numerous ongoing activities.

Best regards,
Andreas Demetriades
EANS President
