About the EANS


You may have heard of us before, you may know us well, but if you don't, here is some information about who we are and what we do.

The European Association of Neurosurgical Societies (EANS) is a fast-growing, independent association, both of European neurosurgical societies and of individual neurosurgeons from all over the world.

Our aim is to enable our members to enhance the care they deliver to their patients by facilitating the exchange of scientific information at the highest level. In pursuit of this goal, we arrange a wide range of meetings, symposia and educational courses, including the European Congress of Neurosurgery and the highly regarded European Training Courses in Neurosurgery.

We recognise the huge part that e-learning now plays in the advancement of scientific knowledge, and are delighted to be able to provide a comprehensive online library of neurosurgical material via the EANS Academy. But we know too, that there is no substitute for “being there”, and therefore offer a growing number of fellowship and observership programmes, both on our own account and in collaboration with selected partners.

Our website holds a wealth of information for neurosurgeons around the world, including a map of events taking place across the globe, access to our journal, Acta Neurochirurgica, and regularly updated job opportunities. To find out more, please go to

Membership of the EANS starts from at little as €75.
