Request for EPNS to support an educational event

Request for EPNS to support an educational event

A core goal of the EPNS is to promote training in the field of Paediatric Neurology. As a result, the EPNS has a small budget to support a limited number of educational events which are taking place as part of A NATIONAL PAEDIATRIC NEUROLOGY MEETING IN EUROPE. The allocated budget allows the EPNS to support a maximum of 3 events in each calendar year. Applications will be considered on a first come first served basis.

Applications for support  for events taking place in 2022 are now being accepted.
